I tried to send this as a pm, but think I failed
You are right Menopause and they were very apologetic but were only able to furlough a percentage of their staff and not unreasonably were offering this to staff who were planning to stay on after the furlough period. She was not prepared to appeal or have any unpleasantness and she was among friends!
She was in a senior position and it would have involved (as before) regular buying trips to China, trade fairs in Germany and commuting to their head office in the city. Frankly she did not want to go on with this sort of high powered career anyway, her little boy is now 15 months and she still gives him the occasional breast feed So a more flexible arrangement closer to home was what she wanted. Just bad luck with the timing and that the start-up company she is joining will take longer to get properly on their feet. It is easy to fall through the net isn’t it?
Middle D was able to apply for the self-employed grant but even there, that is based on average earnings for the previous three years -one of which she was on maternity leave and earning nothing!
Can’t win them all (sometimes you can’t win any of the !)
I hope your business gets back on its feet ASAP and all goes well for you.
Thank you for your interest,
