French Connection will claim furlough cash bonus
French Connection has confirmed that it will claim government cash for bringing workers back from furlough. The chancellor announced in July that all firms can claim £1,000 for each employee they bring back from furlough. Under the job retention bonus, companies can claim the bonus if they bring back an employee from furlough for at least three months after the government's wage payment scheme ends in October. There are currently 9.5 million on the government's furlough scheme who, if they all returned to work, could cost the public purse more than £9bn in bonus payments. French Connection's claim could come at a cost of up to £250,000.
