Employers fear cost of health and welfare reforms

Changes to NHS and the welfare state are feared by employers according to Jelf Employee Benefits 55% of employers at small- to medium-sized enterprises, fear the cost impact of the reforms on their operations and profitability, showing that the repercussions of the coalition’s changes will be felt much more widely than simply at NHS Trust and individual patient level. Increased waiting lists on the NHS may mean key employees take longer to return to the workplace

Steve Herbert for Jelf Employee Benefits says: “Consider being an SME owner-manager with 150 employees: at any one time several members of staff may be receiving medical treatment and should they be delayed in returning to work, or be forced in to returning too soon, the consequences for that employer are enormous. The ramifications for micro businesses may be even more extreme.”
