I'm an in-house lawyer in tech and have been "told" to accept furlough leave from next week. The government's £2,500 will equate to about 30% of my normal salary and my employer is not offering to top it up. It's going to be a struggle for my family given our financial commitments.
I'm thinking it would be better to just hand in my notice and (presumably) take full pay for my 6-month notice period which is enough time to (hopefully) find a new job.
Really keen to hear what others would do in this situation... my head is spinning.
