Katie Smart started this petition to Boris Johnson (Prime Minister) and

If you have two or more jobs with the same employer and some, but not all of the jobs have closed because of covid-19. I feel that the employee should receive the 80% for the jobs that have had to close (hours lost), even if the others remain open. If all jobs closed or they were with separate employers then the job retention scheme would be eligible! At the end of the day, that person has still lost hours, whether they still have some work left or not!

Even if you have lost hours for one job with just the one employer, I think the hours lost should still be covered with the job retention scheme. As any loss of hours can make a huge impact on people’s lives, we all have bills that need to be paid and we can’t pay them or will struggle to, if we are not getting the wages we are used to. The 80% would help hugely in making everyone’s lives just that little bit easier and less stressful.

I clean two separate commercial properties for the same employer, one a solicitors office, which has just closed and the other a surgery, which remains open. However as I still have work at the surgery, I have been told I can not get the 80% for the hours I have lost, which I don’t think is fair at all. That’s just over half my hours with that one employer that I have now lost!

Please sign this petition to help not only me, but others also in this same situation, as I’m sure I’m not the only one with this problem.

Let us receive the 80% for the jobs that have had to close (hours lost), due to covid-19.
