As essential as some people might say contact centres are to keep certain services up and running and people connected these big company’s can more than afford to accommodate to close and have some of their work force working from home. Call centres are a breeding ground for bacteria and raises the risk of the virus spreading. Even if social distancing measures are being taken it will not make a difference when their are numerous people on one floor breathing the same air and still coming into close contact with each other. Many people in contact centres are having to claim statutory sick pay for many reasons because they can’t go into work. Statutory sick pay just isn’t enough for anyone to live on. By not closing the centres Employees can’t receive 80% of their annual wage to help support their families, pay bills etc. These companies can more than afford to close they are not essential. People should not have to choose money over their wellbeing or their family or friends wellbeing. Please close the centres before it’s too late.
