Are future tenses used in relative clauses?

e.g.

  1. He is a person who(that) will listen to everybody.
  2. He'll work with his brother who(that) will explain evrything to him.

Are these clauses correct?

    You can use any tense you want in a relative clause! There are no special rules about tenses for relative clauses ... – Araucaria - Not here any more. Oct 21 '14 at 9:37

Yes, you can use the future tense in a relative clause and both your examples are grammatically correct.

According to Ngram Viewer there’s no such a restriction.
