So, the first thing you need to know about sick pay is when you pay it, how much you pay and for how long and this will depend on your Contracts of Employment. We are going to talk here about Statutory Sick Pay, however you may have different sick pay clauses in your Contracts and you are obliged to meet these obligations.
So, if your contract states that you will pay Statutory Sick Pay then the following applies:
• You pay SSP once your employee has been off work for 4 consecutive days (the first three days are unpaid)
• The current rate of SSP is £95.85 per week (December 2020)
• SSP is payable for a maximum of 28 weeks
