Change the Furlough Support Scheme to include new hires after 30th October

Petition Details

The government have continued the furlough worker support scheme through to March, but it does not include those who have just changed jobs or are due to start a new job in the very near future. This needs to be changed to include these people.

Additional Information

If an employee started working in October just after the cut-off date, they are now in January having worked for months but still not eligible for furlough. It only makes sense that, if the scheme has been extended, then so should the eligibility for it.
