Thank you to North of Tyne Combined Authority who signed the charter on 16th December 2019 providing protection for their 30 employees.
North of Tyne Mayor, Jamie Driscoll, said:
“Being diagnosed with a terminal illness is about the worst thing that can happen to many people, it can upset everything in your life, and yet a lot of people are still in work when this happens. We’re calling for the law to be changed so that if someone is diagnosed they get protected status in their employment. And we think all good employers can do this anyway, which is why we’re signing up to it as the North of Tyne Combined Authority.”
