I will be assisting you.
If your employer intends to access the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, they will discuss with you becoming classified as a furloughed worker. This would mean that you are kept on your employer’s payroll, rather than being laid off.
To qualify for this scheme, you should not undertake work for them while you are furloughed. This will allow your employer to claim a grant of up to 80% of your wage for all employment costs, up to a cap of £2,500 per month.
Please see link below which explains the scheme and eligibility:
Does that clarify your query?
Did you read what I posted above?

Whether you are currently in or out of work, if you are on a low income and affected by the economic impacts of COVID-19, you will be able to access the full range of the welfare system, including Universal Credit.
Please see below on how you can claim benefits during this period:
Is there anything else I can help with?
You need to discuss this with your new employer so that they can claim this grant.
Send the link provided to your employer and discuss this with them.
Is that clear on what you need to do?
I am still here. Please note this is not a chat service and my responses may be delayed.
You can discuss with your current employer about extending your notice period, even if you still intend on leaving.
This is a question you will need to post for an employment expert which is easy to do. Your initial query was regarding Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme which has been answered.
You can post a new question on the site asking the question regarding your employment status specifically. It's easy to do and I am sure another colleague will pick it up immediately.
Ignore the phone call request. It is automated by the website and I did not request this.
Please could you confirm that your first query posted has been answered regarding the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.
I am happy to help you with your follow up question to make things easier, but please confirm the above.
Are you still there?
As you have not signed a contract, you are limited in your options with your new employer.
You should contact your previous employer to see if they will take you back during this interim period.
If not, you may wish to look into obtaining benefits such as Universal credit during this time.
It's a pleasure.
All the best.
