Hello and welcome to Just Answer, can you please explain your situation in more detail?
The question relates to an absence from work due to an injury sustained at work. currently only basic pay is being received.
are you the employee?
no, a friend
does your friends contract state that they will pay full pay in sickness absence?
do you have the exact contract wording?
can you respond yet? I will have to go soon.
Sorry I don,t have the exact wording.
If the contract states that full pay will be paid and the allowances and uplifts that are normally paid are not being included then this will amount to an unlawful deduction from wages and your friend should raise a grievance to state that if they are not paid then he will bring a claim of unlawful deduction from wages in the employment tribunal.
Thank you that is very helpful.
