    Sick Pay after suspension. 11th Jan 18 at 8:07 PM
    Iíts been a while since I posted since my susension from work.
    When I returned since March/April time 2017.
    I was advised I wouldnít get any sick pay if I was unable to attend work.
    Is there any rule to sick pay as I forgot if this was for a full year after suspension or if it was another 6 months on my return (the term of suspension)
    I have asked employers to provide and answer,though thought I could ask via mserís

    Sorry. Maybe I'm tired. But I can't make sense of this. Company sick pay? SSP? you'll need to explain.

    I think the OP has been told they won't get sickpay if they take time off following a return to work after being suspended and doesn't know if this is for 6 months or 12 months after they start back.

    OP you'll have to wait for your employer, no-one else here knows your company policies.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    Thanks mser!!!8217;s
    I!!!8217;ll wait employers answer.
    To confirm it was indeed employers sick pay I was referring to.
    I don!!!8217;t intend to take time off work,though It will be good to know if I can put the suspension into history.

    Suspension and sick leave are totally different. But this does come down to the employers policy, as they can pay anything over SSP according too whatever rules they have.

    Exactly, as I donít know which rules they were following though I do know to be fair it was made clear I wouldnít receive any sick pay-letís hope this isnít permanent.
    Iíll post update via mse once I have the answer from employers-maybe in a few days or a little longer.

    Yes, sick pay over SSP is always at the employer's discretion (although some employers may have it as a contractual right, this is increasingly rare).

    In theory it is possible they could have removed sick pay permanently since suspension.

    Irrespective of not paying Company Sick Pay, the employer would still have to pay Statutory Sick Pay if the employee had earned enough in the previous 8 weeks. An employer cannot choose not to pay SSP.

    There's are reasons, other than ineligibility of course, why an employer can chose not to pay SSP. It rarely happens, but it does happen. The usual one is where an employer doesn't believe the sickness. I recall a case on one of these forums actually, where someone off sick had been spending their time off standing in the cold selling at car boots for full days. The employer had evidence of this and suspended SSP subject to further investigation. If I recall correctly, they were dismissed in the end as their SSP claim was found to be fraudulent.
