Self-isolation and sick leave whilst on a zero hours contract
Many people are on a zero-hour contract. If, under Government guidance, you have to self-isolate or you are off sick with coronavirus, you may be entitled to Statutory Sick Pay (SSP). Check with your employer if you are unsure. Find out more about eligibility or how to claim SSP from Gov.uk.
Additionally, if you find that your working hours have been cut or reduced dramatically as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, you may be able to claim benefits such as Universal Credit. Find out more from Gov.uk.
