they did not give a reason did not know they would pay ssp until i received my recent pay slip and I had to ask for that as well ? and realised I was seriously underpaid I have checked my contract and it states they have sole descretion over sick pay (co) but they did not even inform me I beleive they have done this as I was due for a disciplinary hearing and pretty much had a break down and my gp signed me off as incapapble to cope with my current situation. does this help?
What is your sick pay entitlement and is it guaranteed or discretionary?
discretionary and there is a table of payment which I am entitled to 12 weeks full pay with 4 yrs contiuous service which I have 10yrs and no issues and clean record aswell
I have been paid full sick before but only probably a week all for the last year and 1 full week when I had serious illness in 2006 with shingles
