Hi there, it’s Emma from Charles Russell Speechlys.

Employees can request to take holiday during furlough and employers can require employees to take accrued holiday during furlough, but in order not to undermine the health benefits of taking holiday the amount of holiday taken during furlough should be proportionate to what has achieved.

Employees should however be paid at their normal rate during holiday when on furlough.  If your employer required you to take 5 days holiday during furlough, your furlough would not have been broken and you should have been paid normal pay for that holiday period.
