There are now a large number of Regulations that deal with Coronavirus. This is an opportune time to list them, summarise their contents and provide links.
The Statutory Sick Pay (General) (Coronavirus Amendment) Regulations 2020 – These Regulations provide that a person who is isolating himself from others in accordance with advice on coronavirus is deemed to be incapable of work.
The Employment and Support Allowance and Universal Credit (Coronavirus Disease) Regulations 2020 – These Regulations provide that in certain circumstances the Secretary of State has discretion:
- to disapply the seven waiting days that would otherwise apply to a person who has made a claim for an employment and support allowance;
- to decide that a person who makes a claim for, or is entitled to, universal credit or employment and support allowance may be treated as a person having limited capability for work; and
- to disapply the minimum income floor where it applies to claimants who are self-employed.
