There are some changes taking place to Statutory Sick Pay.

From 24th March employers with fewer than 250 employees will no longer be able to reclaim Covid related SSP from HMRC.

From 24th March Covid related sickness absence will only attract SSP from Day 4 in line with all other sickness absences.  Through the pandemic SSP has been payable from Day 1 but that will no longer be the case.

From 6th April SSP will rise to £99.35 a week.
