If the employee is given notice of redundancy now, while he is furloughed, can my client claim furlough grant for the notice period? My research suggests that he cannot claim but I haven't found anything from HMRC to support this. It seems that my client would be better to claim furlough and give the employee notice of redundancy in May. At least that way he would get some work (assuming there is any to be done) for his money. I think the scheme changed on 1 December which seems unfair so I am wondering if it may have changed yet again.

Furlough grant for redundancy notice period?
My client wants to make his employee (aged 76!) redundant.
