Company Sick Pay
Your contractual offer of employment will confirm your entitlement to Company sick pay, and should be your first point of reference if you are unable to attend work due to sickness.
During normal working hours you must have permission from the Company in respect of absence from work for any reason other than sickness or accident. The Company may deduct a proportionate amount of salary for any days of unauthorised absence.
Any sickness absence during employment must be accounted for in accordance with the Company's Sickness Absence Procedure. In general, you may, at the Company's sole discretion, be entitled to normal basic pay less any statutory sick pay (SSP) as follows:
- Salary during illness will be restricted to a maximum aggregate of 2 weeks at full pay until one year of employment has been completed.
- In the second and subsequent years of employment, salary during illness will be paid at full pay for a maximum aggregate of 4 weeks in any 12 months rolling period.
If absence is as a result of a self inflicted illness or injury only SSP will be paid.
For details of your own entitlement to Company sick pay, please see your offer of employment as it may vary from the cover stated above.
If you have any queries please speak to your line manager.
