Gatwick, Surrey (PRWEB UK) 13 February 2014
Government ministers have proposed a scheme to help get people back into work after being off sick. The Health and Work Service will offer voluntary medical assessments and treatment plans reports the BBC on 9th February 2014. A private sector run scheme will save employers money by having fewer employees of sick. (New Health and Work Service to get long-term sick back to work http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-26105246).
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) states that this service will be paid for by scrapping the Statutory Sick Pay Percentage Threshold Scheme (PTS). The PTS means that some employers are currently given compensation for high levels of sickness. According to the government, approximately one million British people are off work for long-term because of illness.
Despite the positive attitude towards this scheme by ministers, Labour’s shadow work and pensions minister, Kate Green states, “Any help to cut number of days of sickness is welcome, but with the government’s Work Programme helping just 5% of people on sickness and disability benefits into jobs, it is clear much more needs to be done to help people get back to work.”
