Statutory Sick Pay

Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) 

●  If you pay your employee £107+ per week or £464+ per month (before deductions) and they are sick for 4 consecutive working days or more, you should pay Statutory Sick Pay (SSP).

●  SSP is paid from the 4th qualifying day of sickness (ie the 4th day that the nanny is off sick and should have been at work.    The first 3 days are known as “waiting days”.

●  Employees can “self certify” for the first week of sickness, either byinforming you by phone or in writing.   They can also complete a “Employees Statement of Sickness” from their doctor’s surgery.  These can also be downloaded from the HM Revenue & Customs website:

   From the second week of sickness, a doctor’s certificate should be obtained to ensure that SSP can be paid.

   SSP is paid at a weekly rate of £85.85.

●  You could be entitled to small employer’s relief and recover some of the SSP you have paid.  If the monthly total of SSP is greater than 13% of the total National Insurance you owe for the same month,  the difference can be claimed back.
