The government is currently running a consultation on their proposal to give working carers a week’s unpaid Carer’s Leave from work each year.
The consultation closes on 3 August 2020; it covers England, Wales, and Scotland only.
The introduction of Carer’s Leave would be a vital step in helping people who are working alongside their caring responsibilities. It is an issue that Contact has campaigned for.
The consultation is a really important opportunity to improve the rights of working carers.
