What does furlough mean?

If a business cannot maintain the current workforce because it has been severely affected by coronavirus (COVID-19), business owners can furlough employees (give employees temporary leave) and apply for a grant that covers 80% of their usual monthly wage costs.

Apprentices can be furloughed in the same way as other employees and they can continue to train whist furloughed.
