To avoid risk to my health and we live in a small house ,my wife refused to resume work at KFC until 30/6.Her employer has stopped her Furlough and asked her to start work from 12/6 or else it would be unauthorised leave and action will be taken.
In these circumstances is my wife entitled to continuous Furlough until 30/6

Hello

Your wife can still be placed on furlough by her employer as the government has recommended this measure.

However it's up to the employer if they wish to do so.

Therefore I suggest you notify your wife to have a conversation with her employer with the evidence you have about shielding and explain she can still be placed on furlough leave as noted within the ACAS guidance.

Please see below a link regarding the ACAS code which you can ask you wife to print off to take to the meeting.
