Responding to the Government’s response to the Taylor Review, Darren Philp, director of policy at The People’s Pension, said:

“It’s encouraging that the majority of recommendations from the Taylor review have been accepted by the government. But at a time when self-employed people still aren’t covered by auto-enrolment, and only around two in ten people who work for themselves are saving into a pension, the lack of any detail over getting the self-employed into pensions is disappointing.

“The greater emphasis on cross-departmental co-operation is welcome though, as it’s only through this cooperation that the Government will really be able to deliver the meaningful changes that the system so desperately needs.” 

Margaret Grahamslaw, Head of Occupational Health and Wellbeing at B&CE said:

“This is good news for workers as it will help to give them the security they deserve when faced with unexpected illness. All workers should be able to take time off for health reasons if they need to, and attend necessary medical appointments without fearing missing out on pay or even losing their job.

“Here at B&CE, we’re developing an occupational health management scheme for the construction industry, as many workers aren’t currently getting the health surveillance they need. The financial support that will now be provided for workers to have the time off for necessary investigations will enable any conditions to be addressed as early as possible. We hope this will encourage all employers to do the right thing and help the individual to get the support they need.”
