Statutory Sick Pay entitlement for coronavirus related absence
From 24 March 2022, the rules relating to Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) for coronavirus-related absences will end, meaning that pre-pandemic SSP rules will resume. SSP will therefore only be payable after three waiting days and only where the individual satisfies the normal eligibility criteria. The coronavirus-specific Employment and Support Allowance rules will also end.
Therefore, any employee absent due to Covid will receive their normal sick pay as per company policies and procedures.
