Dose my boss have to pay me a basic wag if I'm off work for a work related injury
Thank you for your question.
Unless your contract of employment says otherwise, the employer does not have to pay anything other than statutory sick pay if you are off work through illness or injury.
If the employer is at fault for the accident you can make a compensation claim part of which would be for loss of earnings.
Happy to discuss further.
Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
