19 April: Worthing MP supports more employment protection for terminally ill workers

Plans to give terminally ill workers extra employment protection have been supported by East Worthing and Shoreham’s MP.

Tim Loughton attended a cross-party event in Parliament on Monday (April 18) to give his support to the Trades Union Congress’ ‘Dying to Work’ campaign.

It was set up following the case of Jacci Woodcock, a 58-year-old sales manager from Derbyshire who encouraged to leave her job after being diagnosed with terminal breast cancer.

Mr Loughton said: “People battling a terminal illness deserve choice and shouldn’t be forced to undergo stressful HR procedures with the risk of losing the positive stimulation and distraction of work.
