The Government has today announced that it will be reintroducing the Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) Rebate Scheme which will allow employers with fewer than 250 employees to claim money from the government to cover statutory sick pay that is paid to employees affected by Covid.
SSP is currently £96.35 per week and employers can claim for up to two weeks SSP per employee. The self-employed are not eligible, but casual or agency workers are entitled to SSP.
Employers will be eligible to claim from now and can make claims retrospectively from mid-January 2022.
