Employee phones in sick on a Tue, so he is off (Tue, wed, thur) then on friday goes to the employer and hands his notice in and give a weeks notice (dont work on fri too), he dont work the rest of the week as he claims off sick as well, is the employee entitle to the 6 days ssp. That is the previous wk fri (as the waiting days served on Tue Wed & Thur) then the week he was meant to be working his notice but is off sick?

Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks

    I *think* that if you're working your notice you are technically working same as normal, so I'd expect normal SSP applies if he's fulfilled the criteria.

    Payroll aint my strong point though :)

    sick pay

    Statutory sick pay would be payable, assuming the employee has provided a sick note. You should refer to the employee's contract before making a decision, there may be additional provisions for sick leave, or giving notice.

    Not paying the employee could lead to a claim, so be careful.

    Why not call the MIP helpline if you're unsure?

    Hope that helps

    Thanks

    Mosoon thanks for your reply, I do payroll but all this small things which crope up you always get stuck, the only doubt I have got is employee did not produce SSP sick from the doctors only printed the SC2 from HMRC website and filled it in, I could have thought we do actually need a confirmation from the DR confirming this, unless I am wrong..... or with the form he has completed does he qualify for ssp??

    Is there still the online calculator on hmrc website? I seem to remember using this when I used to do payroll.
    Agree with A-Vic, don't need Dr's note for first week, but as he works 4 day week (Mon - Friday) is the week of notice his second week?
