Dewsbury furlough staff in coronavirus crisis

Dewsbury have confirmed they have furloughed all staff to help ease financial strain on the club during the coronavirus pandemic.

The coronavirus job retention scheme has been brought in by the government in order to allow employers to place their employees on a temporary leave of absence, with 80% or up to £2,500 of their wages covered by the government.

The Rams say the plan will ensure the club is in a strong position to move forwards when the season resumes.

A club statement read: “We thank our staff members for their understanding during this difficult period.

“In line with current government COVID-19 guidance, all areas of the Tetley’s Stadium will remain closed until further notice and club operations will be minimal.

“We hope that you will all bear with us through this difficult period for us all and we hope that you all stay safe.”
