An employee is shielding after receiving a letter instructing them to do so. Can we claim for the additional sick pay for them? Yes, a claim can be made. You would simply send in a claim form, along with a copy of the letter they have received. We would then require confi rmation from the employer as to how long the employee is off work, which can be done weekly via email. We would then process the sick pay using the email as proof.


If an operative has tested positive and self-isolates for the two weeks and then returns to work, is there any point sending a claim in if you don’t pay out until week three? We always advise sending in a claim, no matter how long the person is off sick. We have an eight-week linking period for our claims, so if the person goes off sick again within that period they wouldn’t need to do their waiting days again.


We didn’t realise that a claim could be sent in for COVID- related illnesses. Can we send in a claim now? We can backdate any claims by one month so if your claim is within that time please send


it in. If the person is still off and it’s been over one month, please send everything in and we’ll process what we can.


How long is the sickness benefi t paid out for? We pay out up to 52 weeks sickness benefi t for operatives and 18 weeks for staff members.


Is an employee entitled to statutory sick pay (SSP) as well as payments for the additional sick pay? Yes, the additional sick pay should be added to the SSP.


Do the sick pay payments have tax and national insurance implications? Yes, all payments would have to be processed through the payroll system with the relevant deductions being made.
