Can I still work if I am in the extremely vulnerable group and received letter from NHS advising me to follow shielding measures for 12 months?

As your employer the company has a duty of care towards you which includes ensuring you are not exposed to an unacceptable risk. If you are in the extremely vulnerable group then it is too risky for you to attend work. You would then be entitled to be furloughed from work and entitled to receive 80% of normal wages up to a maximum of £2,500 per month. This arrangement will last until 1 June 2020 but may be extended thereafter.
