The dates and the contract are important ..... I started with the compacy on the 29/3/21 and went off sick with workplace stress on the 22nd/3/22 and have been off since. On contract it says you hav to be employed by them for one year to recieve sick pay in full for 150 days ..... they are now saying I am not entitled to this

the answer is?

Thanks for your patience and enquiry. It seems you would not have been employed for the entire one year period to be entitled to the contractual sick payment. It appears as though you would be entitled to statutory sick pay. Just on a basic calculation it appears you would be approximately a week from the entire year.
