Health is everyone's business: Proposals to reduce ill health-related job loss
A Department for Work and Pensions and Department of Health and Social Care consultation seeks comments on different ways in which government and employers can take action to reduce ill health-related job loss. The proposals aim to support and encourage early action by employers for their employees with long-term health conditions, and improve access to quality, cost-effective occupational health. Under the new measures the lowest paid employees would be eligible for statutory sick pay for the first time. Comments by 23.45 on 7 October 2019.Series: CP 134Link to consultation
