Has your employer denied your request to be put on furlough?
You may have seen that Scope is calling on the Government to provide disabled people with an emergency support package. One of the things we call for as part of a support package is for disabled people to be given the right to be furloughed if they cannot work from home.
Scope’s policy team will shortly be talking to civil servants about this ask. Anecdotal evidence or case studies are invaluable when we are talking to Government. So to help us make the case for this ask, we are looking to hear from any disabled people who would find this recommendation useful. In particular, have you wanted to be put on furlough because you didn’t feel safe going into work, but your employer rejected your request?
