Statutory Sick Pay
Statutory sick pay (SSP) is payable to qualifying employees who normally pay National
Insurance contributions (NIC), often referred to as earning above the Lower Earnings
The weekly rate of statutory sick pay is increased each year from 6 April, and qualifying
employees who are absent because of personal sickness for four days or more qualify
for SSP. Unless the absence ‘links’ with a previous period of
sickness absence, employees have three unpaid ‘waiting days’ before they
are entitled to SSP.
Employees ‘self certify’ their sickness for the first seven days of sickness, after
which employers can require employees to produce a medical certificate in order
to continue receiving SSP.
