A calculator to claim back Statutory Sick Pay due to Coronavirus is now live on the Government website.
The new online service for employers to recover SSP launched yesterday (Tuesday, May 26).
The government service will enable small and medium-sized employers to recover SSP payments they have made to their employees.
Employers are eligible if they have a PAYE payroll scheme that was created and started before 28 February 2020 and they had fewer than 250 employees before the same date.
The repayment will cover up to 2 weeks of SSP and is payable if an employee is unable to work because they:
- have coronavirus; or
- are self-isolating and unable to work from home; or
- are shielding because they have been advised that they are at high risk of severe illness from coronavirus
