Furloughed staff

We're waiting for Abdul Hai to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Sir John Soane's Museum,

With some staff likely to be furloughed due to coronavirus.

What will happen to staff salaries and benefits? Are they likely to get their full pay or will they get the new grant which the Chancellor has set out?

Have you done an estimate of how many staff this is likely to impact?

If you do offer more generous pay than the Chancellor has announced how often will this be reviewed?

What is your recruitment policy in regards to this? As some staff maybe hired but will not be able to perform their job due to the pandemic.

Yours faithfully,

Abdul Hai

Sue Palmer, Sir John Soane's Museum
