Redundancy pay if taking other employment whilst furloughed

 I am currently furloughed pending redundancy in August. I know I am allowed to take other employment whilst furloughed but if I did find another job before the redundancy date, would I lose my payout? * note * I would still be available to work for my existing employer with their 48 hour notice policy, (although I 100% know this won’t be happening)  so in no way shape or form would I be resigning.

    In that case you are fine, providing your employer lets you have a 2nd job. As in some contracts you can't work for other employers. So need to check that.

    Well luckily I already have a second job, which my main employer already knows about as my manager gave me a reference for it, so I guess it’s not  in my contract (actually never looked) but if it was then I would have to claim the point against him in some way 🤷‍♀️
    Which I really hope I don’t have too but the proof is there in my tax records 👍

    I doubt your current employer will care too much, especially if they gave you a reference for your other job.

    As you do not intend to leave your employment before your termination date, you should be OK
    If you are querying your Council Tax band would you please state whether you are in England, Scotland or Wales
