Abuse of UK Furloughed Scheme

A survey of 2,000 furloughed employees across the UK found 34% had been asked by their employer to commit furlough fraud by carrying out their normal duties despite their employers claiming from the government’s coronavirus job retention scheme.

For employers to ask furloughed workers to work is a direct contravention of the job retention scheme’s rules.

A further 18% inducated they had been asked to work for another company linked to their employer, and a similar number (19 %) were asked to cover someone else’s job within their organisation. 

Under government legislation, staff who have been furloughed through the scheme cannot be asked by their employer to continue to work either for them or a company linked to them.
