Letter Informing Employee on Sick Leave That Their Pay Will be Stopped or Reduced

EMP.SCG.13

This Letter Informing Employee on Sick Leave That Their Pay Will Be Stopped or Reduced should be sent to an employee before his or her entitlement to paid sick leave ends.  

The employee’s contract of employment must include details of any provisions for sick pay: Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) and entitlement to occupational (company) sick pay, if any. Employers are not required to continue employees' salary during periods of sickness absence. However, if an employer offers occupational (company) sick pay, the entitlements provided in this regard must be set down in writing.

Most employees are eligible for SSP, which is payable for up to 28 weeks in any one period of incapacity for work. In order to qualify, employees must have average earnings that are at least equivalent to the lower earnings limit for National Insurance purposes. Employers are required to pay SSP to all employees who are eligible to receive it.
