Statutory Sick Pay must continue for those shielding


“The Government must ensure that Statutory Sick Pay continues beyond 1st August so that those reliant on it don’t have to risk their own lives just to make ends meet.”Responding to the news that statutory sick pay will be taken away from 1st August for those shielding due to coronavirus, Liberal Democrat MP  Layla Moran has called for the benefit to continue for those still unable to return to work. 

Layla said: “Instead of feeling a sense of relief, those that are shielding who rely on Statutory Sick Pay will be feeling a sense of unease. They are now faced with the threat of having the rug being pulled from beneath their feet. 

“The Government must ensure that Statutory Sick Pay continues beyond 1st August so that those reliant on it don’t have to risk their own lives just to make ends meet.”
