My child is an Apprentice, can they be furloughed?
0 out Of 5 Stars
Yes, apprentices can be furloughed in the same way as other employees and your child can also continue to train whilst on furlough.
Their employer must pay them at least the Apprenticeship Minimum Wage/National Living Wage/National Minimum Wage for all the time they have spent training. This means that for time spent training your child’s employer must cover any shortfall between the amount they can claim for your child’s wages through the furlough scheme and their appropriate minimum wage.
