they keep you on furlough hoping you will get desperate and look for another job and not come back then they do not have to pay you anything thus it is like you quit .and it goes on your job record with the state that you quit.
@g–l+170aEfOs hit the nail on the head. This is as low as it gets but it saves the company lots of money. And they are not the bad guys who had layoffs during the pandemic, so it also saves the company image. I wish I could afford to stay and force their hand, but sadly I can't. I have a family to feed. Makes me really mad they can do this and get away with it.
