Calculate Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) for your employee.
What you need to know
You’re only responsible for paying SSP if:
- you pay Class 1 National Insurance contributions for your employee (or would do if not for their age or their level of earnings)
- you don’t provide your own occupational sick pay scheme
- your employee was sick for 4 or more days in a row (including non-working days)
- your employee has told you they’re sick within your own time limit (or 7 days if you don’t have one)
You can’t use the calculator for periods of sickness before 6 April 2011.
