What HR needs to know about furlough

Recently, the US department store Macy’s furloughed the majority of its 125,000 staff members due to the coronavirus crisis, which forced the retail chain to shut up shop.

According to CNN Business, the employer revealed last month that the pandemic had taken a ‘heavy toll’ on business. As such, Macy’s, who owns Bloomingdale’s and Bluemercury, closed all of its 775 stores across the US to help stop the spread of the virus.
