Guiding you through Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) law step-by-step

Whilst all companies have to offer Statutory Sick Pay (SSP), not all employees qualify. For a start, you need to be paying Class 1 National Insurance Contributions on their behalf; they need to have been too ill to work for at least 4 days; an occupational sick pay scheme isn’t already in place, and you were made aware of their inability to work within a set time limit. All of these criteria have to be met before Statutory Sick Pay(SSP) is triggered.
