Just out of interest, how long did it take you to formulate this conclusion? I'm not looking for a particularly accurate answer, just round it up to the nearest nano second.
How is this going to work then?
Where are the medical personnel and laboratory staff required to undertake this massive project going to come from? Now this is just a stab in the dark but I'd imagine they'd be quite busy at the moment.
Even South Korea, who are recognised as having one of the most aggressive testing policies have only managed to test 1% of their population. You clearly have no conception as to the scale of what you're proposing.
Even if it was possible to plan, organise and execute it would take years to achieve, by which time all the data would have been redundant and completely meaningless. I was tested last week and it took 2 days for the result, which by the time I received it was already out of date as I was then and now just as likely to be infected as I was when I took the test.
Think about it.
I would say that is exactly what "discretionary" means.
Is that the case? Surely nearly all bonus schemes are discretionary unless explicitly stated otherwise in the employment contract? Does "fairness" come into it?
I agree with emmzi - there's no advantage to the employer in paying it and I can't see the OP forcing them to do so.
not to complicate things, I had a full time job with employer #1 and a part-time zero hour contract with employer #2.
Employer #2 offers me a full time contract starting 1st May 2020.
I leave employer #1 6th March 2020
I then go back to employer #2 and resume 40 hours a week on a zero hour contract until 18th march 2020 when the place has closed.
I have been told the job starting in May will be delayed until June and then we will sign full time contracts.
Taking the advice of Honeybee13, I looked over the internet and it looks like I missed out by a week as the cut off point was the 28th Frbruary
You refer to "my new employers" but when exactly did you start with them, or are you saying you never actually started there.
And on what date did you leave the old employer.
The dates are crucial to this matter.
