I've been in business almost 20 years. In that time I have made some bad decisions. I've employed people who I shouldn't have by overestimating my ability to recruit [The Dunning-Kruger effect].

Employees who are shielding can be furloughed to mitigate the financial impact on them of having to shield (subject to meeting the qualifying rules of the furlough scheme). Under the furlough rules, employers are [...]
