Councils now have the funds and power to make sure all workers in Care Homes and all home care (domiciliary workers) should get paid full pay if self isolating or sick.
BUT it is not happening as councils and care providers are not carrying out the policy, due to a combination of confusion and delay.
Please download this briefing and talk to your councillors today! Ask them to contact Safe and Equal (via firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information, or set up a local meeting of councillors and council worker trade union members, to talk about how to get full sick and self isolation pay (not just SSP!) for all. Let Safe and Equal know and we’ll send you a speaker.
