Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
As far as the information available out there indicates, it would be possible to work elsewhere whilst receiving the Government help during a period of furlough. You are correct that you are not able to work for the employer who has furloughed you but there is currently nothing which says you cannot work for another employer. Saying that, the full details of the scheme have still not been released and we only have limited information so this may be subject to change – you simply have to follow the news and Government announcements to see if there is any further clarification on that point.
Does this answer your query?
All the best
