Owing to the impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic, Norwich City Football Club will begin the process of furloughing members of its staff who are unable to work at this time.
Under the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, the furloughing of staff will safeguard future jobs and help sustain the club throughout this period.
The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme will mean that 80 percent of the salaries of furloughed staff, up to £2,500 per month per individual, will be paid by the government. The club will top up the money received from the scheme to ensure that all furloughed staff receive their usual salary in full.
Where necessary, part time and casual staff will also be furloughed.
As part of the scheme, furloughed staff will not be permitted to carry out work for the club.
The club will continue to monitor and review the situation as it develops.
