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.
How long have you worked for your employer and what is your specific question in relation to this?
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. The 80% scheme is not there for people who decide to self isolate, either because they are in a vulnerable group or have symptoms or have someone else near them who has symptoms. In these circumstances all you can expect is sick pay, as per your contractual entitlement. The 80% scheme is there for employees who have no work due to this outbreak and their employer has no work or money to pay them, which is different than your circumstances.

Hello, I see you have read my response to your query. Could you please let me know if it has answered your original question? You can simply reply on here with a quick ‘Yes, thanks’ and I won’t bother you again. Thank you
