Ikea cut Sick Pay for Unvaccinated Staff “forced” to Self-Isolate


In a tyrannical turn of events, Swedish furniture giant, Ikea, has announced that unvaccinated UK staff who have been told to self-isolate after contact with a Covid-19 positive individual will have their sick pay cut.

Unvaccinated workers could now receive as little as £96.35 a week, which is the Statuary Sick Pay minimum, while they are forced to isolate. This is a drastic and shocking cut compared with the weekly pay of more than £400 for an average store.

However, Ikea has stated that they will consider each instance on a “case by case basis” as it understood that it was an “emotive topic.” Other mitigating circumstances that would be considered within this include pregnancy and other medical grounds.
