Average Weekly Earnings (AWE) - SAP/SPP: backdated pay awards
If a backdated pay rise is received which includes a sum in respect of earnings paid in the relevant period re-calculation of the AWE is required.
If the employee’s entitlement to SAP/SPP is less than the standard rate, the employer must re-calculate the employee’s AWE and pay the extra SP due.
If the employee was not entitled to SAP/SPP the employer must re-calculate their AWE to check if their employee may now be entitled.
There is no benefit equivalent to SAP/SPP
