Sick day before 1 years service

29 Nov 2019, 19:50

Friday, last week, I had my first sick day (Nora virus doing the rounds). Went in at 6.30 after throwing up, copiously. Managed an hour at my frame then went home.

This weeks payslip was minus that day. Management say that's because you can only self certify and get paid after 1 years service.

Can any knowledgeable bods confirm this?

You don’t get paid sick pay til after a years service. Not sure about the hour you were there though....

That's how I understand it.

No sick pay in first year. Not sure why. Kind of surprised with it myself. I would have thought when under contract you would be paid sick pay, legally. But obviously not.

Yes, actually it's 54 weeks. If your off you can claim ssp (statuary sick pay) but as you only had one day off you won't qualify.

Really stunned by this. I'm full of cold and unlikely to be working tomorrow and it looks like I won't get paid for being sick. It just shows what the company thinks of the workers and also that the union only cares about full timers. An absolute joke. The union should get this sorted.

Think we’re lucky after a year to get full sick pay for sick months not many company’s do that mind,and it’s hard job but when you pass that year if your full time or part time you get the same Benefit.

Yeah sorry mate but no sick pay in first year of service. I had few days off and same thing got docked pay. I suppose it is there to stop genuine blaggers but not nice if you have to struggle into work when you are still ill. That's life I suppose.
