Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What have his average earnings been since he started?
nov - 625 for half a month
same for jan
can he even claim anything?
He probably can, a person's eligibility to SSP does not depend on how long they have worked somewhere or if they have a contract. You can see the criteria here:https://www.gov.uk/statutory-sick-pay/eligibilitySo as long as he satisfies these conditions then he will be eligible for SSP, which is paid at £87.55 a week
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
so who pays the ssp at 87.55? does he claim that from dwp because we have no money as a parish f he holds no services and donations don't come in to pay him?
you as the employer are responsible for paying SSP.
you used to be able to claim some of that back from the HMRC but that was withdrawn a year ago
so its best we determine if he is even entitled to any at all in the first place with no contract as he refused to sign it!
it does not matter that he has not signed the contract, that will not make him ineligible
he insisted that he was self-employed when we wanted to discuss the contract after he worked a handful of days...
Hi Ben, can you help please. If i need to post the question again, let me know. If an employee gets a GP sick note 2 weeks and within those 2 weeks he goes to perform duties as normal in public with witnesses present, what options do we have to refuse his sick pay and potentially end his employment regardless if he has signed a contract or not?
No problem. Doing it now.
