Peter Cappelli 写的《The Future of the Office》 (Cappelli 2021) 提到假期的重要性，写道：
Some companies, such as Marriott International, furloughed 66% of their corporate employees for two months. 有些公司，比如万豪国际给 66% 的员工提供 2 个月的放假。
这个 furlough 是放假的意思，多用于军事中的准假。其实是 for leave 的一个比较古老的写法。
举个例子，比如英国最近在清算，召回了 23 亿英镑新冠期间的企业补助。这些无良企业宣传员工在休假，领取政府补助，其实是在让员工上班。
Efforts by Tory ministers to recover the £2.3 billion of taxpayers’ cash received by employers falsely claiming Covid-19 furlough support for staff who continued to work are “woeful and will fail to deter potential future criminals,” MPs warned today.
