Implement emergency legislation to allow volunteering in key businesses

Petition Details

Currently anyone volunteering for a private business could be deemed a worker, and so entitled to wages and other employment rights. The Government should introduce emergency legislation to allow people whose workplaces have been closed to help in key industries as volunteers.

Additional Information

This would encourage people who can support the nation to do so without creating costs for businesses, or risking any adverse consequences in terms of losing benefits or increasing taxes for the individuals volunteering.
