Changes to Statutory Sick Pay – 2017

Small Employers unfortunately have no longer been able to reclaim any Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) from Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

SSP has now increased to £89.35 per week subject to the employee’s eligibility.

This will have financial implications for people who have funded support packages.

You may want to contact your funder regarding this recent change if you are unable to cover paying SSP.
