can somone shed some light on COVID vunerable letter
Hi, my wife has been off work since last march. She works at a supermarket and was put on furlough. When it was time to return back to work her doctor said she was not allowed due to her health condition. So she stayed off work and received company sick pay until it finished in October. Now, she is receiving £95 per week. She has got the letter from the government to shield and it mentions she maybe entitled to ESA. She does not understand that. Also, received information that even though she is on SSP because the government have asked her to shield she can now ask her employer which is Tesco to put her back on furlough, but she does not know if that is correct or not.
We are just trying to find out what the right thing to do
