Here is the scenario:
Pension payments are made under salary sacrifice arrangements.
Pensionable pay includes all of basic pay in our definition, but not overtime or commission.
If an employee is entitled to SSP, how should the amount sacrificed by them be calculated - ie should it include the SSP value, or not?
Similarly, should the employer part be calculated on the whole amount payable including the SSP.
Or - should the employer contribute the full amount (ie including a percentage of the SSP) without making any deduction.
Normally, absence for us is only the odd day per month per head, so never really cropped up. This time, though, I have someone off all month.
