Nottinghamshire has become the first county council to sign up to a new charter helping employees with terminal illnesses stay in their job.
TUC’s Dying to Work Voluntary Charter gives employees a ‘protected period’ in which they can not be dismissed from their role as a result of their terminal illness.
Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, cllr Alan Rhodes, said: ‘We are working closely with our recognised trades unions locally to build on our existing approach and to translate the principles of the charter into practical management guidance and support for employees. This will ensure that their personal choices regarding work are recognised and respected at this difficult time.’
