What happens with furlough pay if we have holiday booked during that period?

    When employees take holiday during furlough they must be paid 100%, you can claim back 80% as part of the furlough scheme but your employee would not be paid both holiday pay and furlough pay.


    The below is taken from our Updated Furlough Guidance article which can be found here -


    Employees are entitled to take annual leave whilst on Furlough, and the amount paid should be 100% of the holiday amount due. Therefore employers are obliged to pay the additional 20% on holiday payment amounts, which cannot be reclaimed via the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme grant.
