Hi thank you for your enquiry and patience

You signed your contract which is now binding between you and you employer. You will not have accrued any leave so they may opt to say you take unpaid leave for a certain period and if they do require you and do not wish to hire different person once the pandemic is over they could furlough you with the rest of the employees in which case you would get the 80% pledged by the government. You have not started work with them yet so unfortunately if they are not able to retain everyone for when they reopen you are likely to be one of the employees who will have to be laid off. In which case you will regrettably have to apply for universal credit and any other benefits you may be entitled to depending on your personal circumstances. I hope this helps and I would be grateful for your rating at your earliest convenience. All the best
