Covid-19 - Coronavirus - Self Employed/Directors of One Man Limited Companies and non receipt of Statutory Sick Pay (SSP)

With the Coronavirus spreading throughout the UK, many Self Employed people will have to take time off work to self isolate to help prevent the virus spreading.  However, unlike employed staff, the Self Employed do not have the benefit of receiving Statutory Sick Pay (SSP).

The UK Government have now stated that Employers will pay their staff SSP from day one of self isolation to help prevent the spread of the disease.  With the Self Employed not being paid SSP, this may result in them having to continue working when they are ill, or have come into contact with someone with the virus, simply to pay their bills.

Individuals and Families of the Self Employed: Please sign this petition to help the UK Government understand the needs of the UK population and help delay the spread of this deadly virus.

UK Government: Please make it a fair society by supporting the Self Employed and Company Directors of small, one man Limited Companies during this difficult time.
