Additional Statutory Paternity Pay (ASPP) - general information: employee not entitled to ASPP

ASPP is not payable for any complete week in which the employee works for the employer except for:

  • Keeping in Touch (KIT) days, or
  • working for another employer who they worked for during the Qualifying Week (QW) or Matching Week (MW).

ASPP is also not payable for any complete week in which the employee did not expect to be caring for the child at the start of the ASPP week.

If the employee is not entitled to ASPP the employer should complete form ASPP1 and give it to their employee. This form informs the employee of the reason why they are not entitled.

If the employee disagrees with the decision see SPM220300.
