This follows Ikea’s decision this week to do the same with their self-isolating employees.
The move has been seen as controversial. We asked our readers for their opinion, here is what they had to say.
Adam Clevett said: “It will encourage people who are infected to go to work and spread the virus so more staff shortages.”
Ardhoniel Elvish: “I don't get sick pay, and I'm fully vaccinated... Why should anyone else get paid for not?”
John Woodhouse: “Most care workers don't get sick pay and are on a low wage, why should others?”
Johanna de Vine: “Most places will. A lot of places are paying full pay for covid but end of the day if you're not vaccinated then I don’t see why you should benefit as your not doing the right thing to keep everyone you work with safe.”
Kevan Mitchell: “What's sick pay? Most companies don't pay sick pay. Only SSP when you qualify.”
Stuart Gill: “Fair enough - you need longer off work through your own choice - free to make the choices you want in life, but you must accept the consequences. That’s true in all aspects of life.”
Lin Shaw: “Disgusting.”
Louise Morgan: “Vile. Because you can still be ill and off work with covid once jabbed! Stupid controlling behaviour.”
Dan Slim Weston: “Im ok with it but its a slippery slope, what next? No sick pay for anyone who left their home and caught flu?”
