FAQs on the Furlough Portal
How do I log-in to the Furlough Portal?

I have contacted you recently to furlough my employee however not had confirmation from you, what do I do?
After logging in to the Furlough Portal, go to step 2. If you cannot see your employees listed under question 2 (select employee to furlough) then we have your furlough details and you do not need to complete step 2 again. If your employees are listed under question 2, then you can complete step 2 and submit the information again.
I have received confirmation from you that you have my furlough details, what do I do next?
