Unrestricted and unconditional pay when diagnosed with a progressive or life threatening condition

Year: 2018

Nominating section: Northumberland

Policy text:

Conference recognises the devastating impact that being diagnosed with a progressive or life threatening condition such as cancer or Parkinson’s disease can bring to an individual and their family.

Not only is it a mental drain but the financial implications whilst someone receives their treatment can become overwhelming.

Conference urges the Executive Council to work with Employers to recognise such illnesses in the same way that injuries in the workplace are recognised and guarantee that disability leave and full pay are given to that individual.
