All companies should pay there staff if they enforce an employee to take self isolation to avoid spreading the Teacher Queen royal of everything shirt, and if a company decides to close there business due to this then again they should pay there staff full pay if they make that decision. So sad you see people as innately dishonest. I think you’ll find that most people will be honest and sensible. People also tend to be more risk conscious when they are scared, so Im sure you might find some that self isolate without anything other than just a sniffle. It may be better to err in their favour for once though. That well-known phenomena of woman’s flu we hear so much about. Exactly my business is suffering already due to travel cancellations from customers, if I had to pay staff for not being here I wouldn’t have a business left in a fortnight.
I wonder how many small businesses will go to the wall supporting this Teacher Queen royal of everything shirt. Who’s going to support the small independent businesses. It’s a definite puzzler, as the Government needs to protect everyone here. The large conglomerates Amazon, Greggs, etc., can afford to support this, and hopefully franchises will also uphold the sick pay, but as a self-employed Worker, in an expensive rental house, I’m probably looking at getting help from my 2 kids who are NHS staff. Maybe the company should claim off the government, or get some. Sort of business tax rebates as the employee still has bills to pay and food to put on there table each evening.
