calculating SSP

Didn't find your answer?

One of employees has been sick since 1/11. He is working 4 days weekly pattern: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 40 hours a week.  He has sick note for the period from 11/11 till 22/11. His first qualified day for SSP is 6/11. Is he entitled to SSP for 8/11 and 9/11? Also during sickness he handed a notice on 13/11. As he is on probationary period he is entitled to one week's notice payment. Shall I treat his last week of notice (13/11 to 20/11) as 40 hrs weekly paid wage or rather SSP? Is he entitled to SSP from 8/11 or rather from 11/11? I would appreciate any answers.

He doesn't need a sick note for the first week of his sickness. If his doctor's note only starts on 11th, that's stretching it a bit.

Do you think he wasn't ill between 1st and 10th November ?

You'll need to say what days he was supposed to work if you're going to get a straight answer here.

It's pretty easy to find guidance on ssp if I'm honest. Unsure why it's so hard for you to find.

A great example of an HMRC help page.

"Does your employee routinely work different days each week ?"

"Yes."

"Oooh, common situation but too hard for us. You'll need to work it out manually."

Hold on, he has handed his notice in. And then chosen not to work it by being sick.

Why would you be paying him notice pay?

If you had asked him to leave with no notice then he would be entitled to the notice pay but as it goes, he has chosen not to work it, sick or otherwise.
