    Hi all, my current placement ends on 22nd May due to maternity period finishing.

    As this was an agreed finish date will I be eligible for furlough. I am currently employed through an agency and am paid by an umbrella company.

    Thanks in advance

    How come you aren't already on furlough?

    The school wanted me to continue with the online teaching as the usual teacher had not yet returned from maternity. It has felt like a bit of a waste of time considering the number logging on to do the work but it paid better than furlough.

    Now trying to figure out how this furlough thing works. I read some of the experiences on here and am dreading it...

    You should be fine but you need to ask your agency to put you on furlough. See what happens then - having said that, is there not an excellent chance you will be asked to carry on from June 1st?
