SSP & Pregnancy If an employee has an entitlement to company

This answer was rated:

SSP & Pregnancy

If an employee has an entitlement to company sick pay for 10 days (lets say) and they have a pregnancy related sickness. Should this come off their 10 days entitlement for the year? Or is it that because it is pregnancy related that it does not come off Company sick pay.

Hello Jackie,

SSP only comes in after contractual company sick pay has been exhausted/used up. So, if the 10 days company sick pay has not been used up, that should first kick in to cover the sickness (which you say is pregnancy related).

It should not matter that the sickness is pregnancy related.

Hope this helps
