I’m on a bank employment contract, am I entitled to claim the 80% income support on the furlough scheme just as the zero hours contract employees are?

    It's not an entitlement you can claim yourself.
    Discuss with your employer about your employment status and ask for clear answers as soon as they can provide them.

    I am employed, with PAYE status and have been temporarily ‘stood down’ as the office has had to close. The government included zero hours in the furlough scheme but not bank contracts. I’m unsure if my employer can claim for us bank employees in the same way.
