Full pay for a significant portion of the workforce isn't a living wage.


If they can't get by on full pay then why are they still doing the job?

Surely they would have to have left to find another job already if full pay wasn't enough?

Full pay on a 20 hr contract is 20 hrs regardless of how many hours you may actually work. There are very few employees on 20 hr contracts who only work 20 hrs or could survive on 20 hrs pay.

This primarily relates to statutory sick pay (SSP)

Royal Mail sick pay terms are actually very good, far beyond what you'd get if it were just SSP. Royal Mail have also extended that to people working here under a year, so nobody that's permanently employed by Royal Mail will need to worry about only getting SSP if they have to self-isolate, they will get full pay as normal. They have also made that crystal clear by stating that if you are advised by the NHS to self-isolate you will be paid.

However, what has not been estalished, is how this applies to the usual stages part of the attendance policy. Some people have stated that managers are saying they need proof you've been off with coronavirus (then it won't be counted towards a stage), but the NHS has stopped testing people in the wider community, and are only testing people that are hospitalised. So it's going to be nigh on impossible to establish whether you have coronavirus, or some other respiritory illness like the common cold.

So people are obviously worried about falling foul of the attendance policy. Especially those already on a stage 1 or 2.
