Supporting personal assistants

Information for personal assistants (PAs) on being a key worker during the coronavirus outbreak.

Further information

Employers can support personal assistants’ status as a key worker in the following ways:

  • Writing a document that explains that their PA is employed by them, how their PA provides essential support and details of how to get in touch with them as their employer.
  • Contacting their direct payment provider (for example, their local authority or CCG) or support organisation for a letter or other document that confirms they are a key worker.
  • Asking their PA to share a copy of their contract of employment.
