Industry News | 15/09/20

More than half of those furloughed since May 2020 returned to work by mid-August according to data published by the Office for National Statistics. At the scheme’s peak in May, 30% of the workforce across the UK was furloughed. The share of the workforce furloughed fell by more than half to 11% by mid-August – and will likely have fallen further since.
