Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
more than three years. after four days of work you receive SSP, i think so.
Thank you. When you are off sick, regardless of the reasons, you would still only be entitled to the contractual sick pay that your contract allows you to receive if you were off on sick leave. Whether the absence was due to an accident at work is unfortunately irrelevant, although if the employer’s negligence can be attributed to this there could be a separate claim for personal injury although it would not affect your entitlement to sick pay as per your contract.
There is of course no harm in speaking to HR about this first and making your views clear, after all the worst they could say is no and leave things as they are. After that you would have to consider your options and whether to take any separate action for personal injury if you believe that it was their negligence which caused the injury.
