Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What does your contract say about sick pay?
Ok that will be important because your right to sick pay will depend entirely on what is in your contract. There is no legal right to receive full pay during sickness periods, even if the reason for your absence is related to a workplace injury or was the employer's fault. You will usually only get Statutory Sick Pay, which kicks in after 4 consecutive days of absence, but anything on top of that is at the employer's discretion and will be governed by what is in your contract.
Ok thanks Ben. Looks Like I'm on a looser.
Well do check the contract and also any policies that form part of it as there could be something in there about sick pay
