Waitrose workers ‘told they must pay back time taken off sick if they self-isolate’

Waitrose workers ‘told they must pay back time taken off sick if they self-isolate’

metro - 1 month ago
Shoppers visit a Waitrose supermarket in Frimley, south west of London on March 29, 2020, as life in Britain continues during the nationwide lockdown to combat the novel coronavirus pandemic. - Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned Saturday the coronavirus outbreak will get worse before it gets better, as the number of deaths in Britain rose 260 in one day to over 1,000. The Conservative leader, who himself tested positive for COVID-19 this week, issued the warning in a leaflet being sent to all UK households explaining how their actions can help limit the spread.

Staff at Waitrose have been told they will have to ‘pay back’ time taken off if they self-isolate due to coronavirus, a whistleblower has claimed.

An anonymous worker told the Sunday National that staff with underlying health problems who stay at home to reduce their chances of contracting coronavirus have been told they will be made to pay up to two weeks of the work they’ve missed.

She claimed that this applied to those staying at home to protect a family member and said she feared staff who could not afford to stay at home might come in and spread the virus to members of the public.

The worker told the National: ‘My biggest concern around this is that really vulnerable people will not self-isolate or shield, and those who need to self-isolate due to family illness will put society as a whole at risk due to these punitive measures.

‘Shoppers could be put at risk if we have partners with sick spouses or children coming into the stores.’

Almost 1,400 staff at John Lewis, which is a partner of Waitrose, have been furloughed on full pay for the duration of the crisis. The whistleblower said that complaints had been raised with management about the approach Waitrose has taken.

She argued that she felt she needed to speak out as it was important for the public to know the company ‘had a risky policy in place’.

A spokesperson for Waitrose said the company was asking staff to ‘time bank where possible’.

They said: ‘We understand that isnt possible for everyone so each case will be looked at on an individual basis and discussed with their manager.

‘The health of our partners is our absolute priority.

‘We have provided guidance to partners who may have a suppressed immune system to check with their primary healthcare professional regarding their specific needs before discussing work adjustments with their manager.’
