I would like to see furlough made mandatory for parents/care givers who have to stay at home with children when schools are closed due to lockdown or other associated issues with pandemics where they cannot access any other childcare. It is criminal that families are placed in to hardship due to having to take time off unpaid to look after children when it is no fault of their own. Parents/caregivers should not have to choose between paying bills/buying food etc and their childs safety and wellbeing.

Companies should not have the choice on honouring furlough or not under these circumstances, the safety of our children should ALWAYS be a priority .
