Extend the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme to cover all pregnant women

Petition Details

All Pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy to be entitled to the furlough scheme, especially people working in Health care.

Additional Information

I was forced to choose my job or my baby. As a Health care worker working in a care home and 13 weeks pregnant me and my employer made a decision for me to stop working as too many Residents were showing signs of Coronavirus.

Everyday was making me more anxious about going to work worrying who I come in contact with might already have the virus.

I couldn’t be put on furlough so I had to go on sick pay which could result in me not being entitled to my maternity pay further down the line.
