Petition Action

Remove firms discretion and obligate firms to furlough employees where eligible.

Petition Details

Companies should be obligated by the government to furlough employees where eligible, this should not be solely at firms discretion.

Additional Information

Many redundant employees are missing out on the furlough scheme for no other reason than firms have discretion, and some simply cannot be bothered with helping their recently redundant employees. The scheme the government have rightly won applause for is not being utilised in the way that it should by some employers.
