CIPP Survey: Proposals to reduce ill-health related job loss
27 August 2019
Your views are needed on the proposals made within this consultation – which includes adapting the Statutory Sick Pay scheme to allow for phased return together will partial payment of SSP and pay during that period.
The CIPP Policy team has produced a survey in order to obtain your views and inform our response.
Despite record rates of employment, there remains a gap between the employment of disabled people compared with those who are non-disabled, and disabled people are twice as likely to fall out of work. The government believes that significant intervention is required to transform the lives of disabled people and people with long-term health conditions.
Many people who are in work may also be managing one or more long-term health conditions which can affect their ability to remain in work. Some people leave work for health-related reasons, yet evidence shows that the right support from their employer could help them to stay in work.
This government has published a consultation setting out proposals which aim to reduce ill health-related job loss.
The survey closes on 30 August 2019 and should take around 30 minutes to complete.
