    1. Your notice period will be from when they told you unless they stated otherwise
    2. Until the government make an announcement or it is tested in court, who knows you can make a good argument for both. My way of thinking of it is that notice is still pay, you agreed to be furloughed so agreed to that pay. So why should notice period change that? Granted it is not that simple. To me the best you can do is accept whichever they offer and if it gets tested in court and found to be wrong can rectify it later.

    You have been there for 1 year so have few rights, but i am of the view that notice should be at 100%, especially if it is contractual notice pay.  What did the letter say when you agreed to go on furlough?

    Hello all, I may be off centre, but I was furlough, but a little while ago, told I will  be made redundant, a friend said, a-credit card may be useful over the coming months. I’ve only got a DD card. I not to sure what to think at the monument.

    I would try and want 100% personally too. Although argument can be made for both I would also think the 80% is probably more likely as notice period is just that notice to finish, it is not redundancy pay. But as with many things the government has been quiet which is a bit disappointing as it is a fairly common issue and always was going be. So I doubt we will know the real answer until a judge rules on it.

    The furlough arrangement is formally a Job Retention Scheme.  The employer has now decided that they will not want the OP to return so have given notice, not retaining them in their former job. 
    Notice runs from the day after notification is received.  So if notice is to run from 2 June the notice should have been received on or before Monday, 1 June.  It then runs to the termination date which will be at least one week (statutory minimum) or longer if that is in accordance with the contract of employment.  In accordance with that contract it should be at 100% of salary.  Remember too that paid leave will have accrued for the entire period of furlough/notice period.  They may require you to take any holiday, giving you notice for the holiday.
