  • a review and update of employment documents;
  • provision of correspondence, policies and procedures;
  • employment law updates in clear English;
  • regular education and training;

Dear Kate

I have a question about long term sickness absence. We have an employee about to be off for a long period of time due to health. He will be in hospital for a minimum of 5 days and after will need 6-8 weeks if not more recovery time. What is the general practice for his pay? When should we begin to put him on SSP? So far any hospital appointments we have not taken as sick or holidays i.e. we have paid him for them.
