Furlough scheme petition

 Furlough has been a help for many businesses, but when the extension was announced in November, the model was changed slightly to made the employer responsible for paying employee National Insurance and Pension contributions. For some businesses, the cost of paying this alone works out to be more than the grants given by the Government in this most recent enforced closure for so many. There is a call to the Government to cover NI and Pensions contributions under the extended furlough scheme from November, as in the original scheme earlier this year. A petition has been created which you can find here: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/559375  At a time when the job market is at its most fragile we need the Government to support those employers who are using the job retention scheme to keep their work force safe and financially secure and support this petition.
