Hi,

Thank you for your query. If you are self isolating, you are not entitled to full pay unless agreed with your employer.

Tje Government guidance is that those self isolating without symptoms should receive at lease unpaid leave. Those who are off sick with symptoms should receive at least SSP.

I hope this answers your questions. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

many thanks

I understand this ,,but it does not answer my question, can my employer keep my last weeks pay that was worked for and is paid a week I leu, this should have been paid 26th but I received £94 ssp .the employer is keeping these wages until I return to work

Hi,

If this is for work already carried out, No, the employer cannot retain this at all.

I hope this answers your questions. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.
