Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hi sorry I was offline when you replied. If you take a day off sick then you are not automatically entitled to be paid anything for that day. You are after all not available to work and the employer is not legally obliged to pay you anything if you are not ready and willing to work, even if you are off with genuine sickness.
You will only be entitled to pay in the following circumstances:
So if you had no contractual right to sick pay, in these circumstances the employer is not obliged to pay you anything because you were not in work to do the work required of you.
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
They should issue you with a written statement of employment particulars within 2 months of you starting, so you can certainly ask them for that, but it would not change the issue in relaiton to sick pay as these conditions do not have to make any provisions for paying you sick pay
Does this clarify things for you?
you are welcome, all the best
