I'm trying to help an employee, faced with redundancy. If I can show that furlough status is an option, with payment deferred until the grant is received, then that might be acceptable to the employer. Otherwise the employer is likely to continue down the redundancy route, which for an employee who recently joined is unattractive. Hence my desire to quote something technical to support my suggestion.

Thanks Samantha20. This is the sort of solution I'm hoping to be able to propose, but I need a technical reference to justify it. If anyone has a link to back this up it would be welcome.

Thanks for responses so far. Points re the business noted. I am asking on behalf of one of the employees and looking to make a constructive suggestion whereby the likely redundancy can be averted.
