Occupational sick pay and benefits
5 replies 162 views
I have been on long term sick for almost six months and so the SSP part of my contractual sick pay is due to finish soon, but I will continue to get half pay for another six months, up until December. HR has sent me a letter about sick pay but I can’t make sense of it - the part I can’t understand is sick pay reducing by the amount of benefit (see below). I get UC and have also just been assessed as LCWRA (I won’t start getting the extra amount for LCWRA until September). I am off sick with a disability related illness and also shielding until 1 August, and since mid March (shielding letter received from NHS/Government) and my employers are looking to dismiss me on ill health capability. Which benefits are taken into account when reducing the occupational sick pay, does anyone know?
