“I’m a zero hours contract worker. What do I do if I need to self-isolate?”
DO NOT come to work. Phone your line manager and your union rep. Tell them you are self-isolating and the reason. Follow the advice on the government website here.
If you feel yourself developing symptoms at work, LEAVE IMMEDIATELY. Once you are out of Trust premises contact your line manager and tell them you are leaving to self-isolate.
Inform your line manager that you are entitled to FULLY PAID during this absence. If necessary, refer them here: “It is essential for infection control purposes that staff members who are told to self-isolate, do so as quickly as possible. NHS England and NHS Improvement wrote to chief executives on 2 March 2020, stating staff should receive full pay whilst in self-isolation. This includes bank staff and sub-contractors, who have to be physically present at an NHS facility to carry out their duties.”
