Most furloughed workers fear they will not have a job next year

Workers who have been furloughed during the pandemic have admitted they don’t think they will have a job by next year.

It’s according to a recent study on staff who have been laid off by their employer during the coronavirus outbreak.

And many workers have been trying to improve their career prospects while they have been off work.

Staff are not allowed to work while they are furloughed but they can take training courses and do voluntary jobs.

A survey of 2,000 adults by the social change charity Good Things Foundation found only three in 10 of those who have been on furlough are not worried about their longer-term job prospects.

More people on furlough are concerned about future employment than those who have remained working during the coronavirus crisis, the study indicated.

Many workers who have been laid off have taken steps to improve their employment prospects, said the report.

Helen Milner, chief executive of Good Things Foundation said: “This is a stressful time for many people, but the uncertainty furloughed workers are facing is causing them significant stress and hardship.”
