Liverpool place some non-playing staff on furlough

Liverpool are the latest Premier League club to place some of their non-playing staff on temporary leave.

On Friday it was announced the league would be suspended indefinitely because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Those staff will be paid 100% of their salaries to ensure no member of staff is financially disadvantaged,” a statement from the league leaders said.

Newcastle, Tottenham, Bournemouth and Norwich have also said they would furlough non-playing staff.

The Liverpool statement added: “Even prior to the decision on staff furloughing, there was a collective commitment at senior levels of the club – on and off the pitch – with everyone working towards a solution that secures jobs for employees of the club during this unprecedented crisis.

“There is ongoing active engagement about the topic of salary deductions during the period matches are not being played to schedule. These discussions are complex and as a result the process is ongoing.”
