    Self employed - entitled to sick pay? 20th Feb 05 at 9:25 PM

    My boyfriend has a temping job testing DVDs and is apparently self employed. He has been diagnosed with Bell's Palsy which could last for weeks or months. His left eye is quite painfull so he does not feel he could manage to stare at tv screens all day until he's better.

    He has told me that he is not entiltled to any satutory (spelling?) sick pay since he is self employed. Surely he must be entitled to something, as he will have no income for some time?

    Thanks for any help and advice
