Fund full sick pay for employees that are off work due to COVID

Petition Details

Families cannot afford to have 2 weeks off work, due to Track & Trace if employers will only pay employees SSP (£95.85 per week). The Government should help employers pay their staff their full wage. This could operate in a similar way to the furlough scheme.

Additional Information

People work hard to earn enough money to covers their bills, and many have no chance to save, so having to self-isolate for 2 weeks will have a devastating financial effect on many families and households. People cannot afford not to work. They would safely stay at home if they could afford to.
