    Yes you can work during furlough, but not for the employer furloughing you. 
    Your tax will depend on your total earnings during the tax year no matter how many jobs.

    Check that there is nothing in your contract of employment that prevents you. Seek permission from your employer if necessary.

    Are they going to be paying you 80% or 100%?
