Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
What is your specific question in relation to this please?
Thanks. Please provide the information I have just requested
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. Whilst you may be in the vulnerable group that does not mean you MUST self isolate and not come to work. It means you should and it is probably best if you consider it for your own safety, but the end decision is yours. If the employer is forcing you to go off and they are making that decision, they should still pay you as normal and not put you on SSP. That is unless there is a clause in your contract allowing them to lay you off without pay or to change your contractual hours.
As to the 80% promises, no one quite knows yet as the full details have not been released but in general it is likely to be down to the employer to decide who gets it and it is there to help them avoid redundancies or lay offs, but not guarantee them. You just have to wait and see what further details about eligibility are released over time.

All the best
