Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) is currently £89.35 per weekend is payable to employees who are too ill to work, and is payable for up to 28 weeks.
Your employees need to qualify for SSP and be off work sick for 4 or more days in a row.
The payment can’t be less than the statutory amount, but you can choose to pay your employees more if you operate an ‘occupational scheme’.
