New Statutory Sick Pay rules relating to Coronavirus come into force as of 13th March 2020.

SSP must be paid to anyone:

  • who is unable to work because they have been advised to self-isolate; or
  • who is  caring for someone in their household who displays symptoms of coronavirus and is asked to self-isolate.

We’re still waiting for the legislation which will provide SSP from day one, albeit this has been announced.
