Alexandra Ellis started this petition to Rishi Sunak and

I'am petitioning for a change of cut off point for workers who were added to the PAYE payroll system after the 28th of February. As a result workers have been let go, with contacts terminated as they do not meet the criteria for the furlough scheme, they are now left with no form of income. This is a serious matter as there will be thousands of workers in this position. 

This scheme, understandably needs to have a cut off point but given the extraordinary circumstances that the nation is currently experiencing and a situation that is changing rapidly day by day, the government needs to reconsider their cut off point as many companies tried to maintain as much normality as possible.

This means companies pressed ahead with normal service and now puts them in the difficult decision of letting staff go.

I vote for the cut off date to be extended to the 16th of March, which is when Boris Johnson told people to stay at home and normality seized.
