The article discusses the call of human resource (HR) organizations to the government to make care vouchers accessible to employees in Great Britain. Organizations including HR professionals from BT and the John Lewis Partnership assert that the vouchers would provide tax and national insurance exemptions for employees who care for someone who is ill, frail, or has a disability. The Department for Work and Pensions Select Committee has suggested the model to the government and asked for a full cost-benefit analysis and pilot scheme.
