Following further representations by NIPSA it has been agreed that agency workers
employed in the NICS will have the extension of full pay for any period of self-isolation.
Previously this was capped at 2 weeks.

This is a welcome development to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all staff and
also ensures that agency workers can avail of the same rights as permanent members
of staff working in the NICS.

Please ensure this is circulated widely within your branch and in particular please draw
this to the attention of agency workers in your branch. A copy of the link to the NICS
Hub on agency workers is set out below.
