Hi hope someone can help me out if not aw well ill see when i go back to work tomorrow.

I have had 2 weeks on the sick. (hurt my back) first time i have been on the sick and worked for the company for 21 months.

I work shifts 3 days on 4 days off

Checked my bank on friday and had £22.50 sick pay thought that was rather bad to be honest. i know the first week is always the worst but was hopeing for more my back is still hurting me tho its lot lot better and after this pay cant really afford to stay on the sick anymore.

So anyone eles been on the sick and had really poor pay for the first week? hope next weeks' pay is at least more.

Welcome to the real world. lol

in te5c0, 1st 3 days are unpaid - then you get sick pay. never had a day off sick since 2001. (4 days!)
#8
as far as I know you do not get paid for the 1st 3 days and then after that it is £79.15 a week,an employer can pay SSP for up to 28 weeks, hope you feel better soon

Make sure you get a doctors sick note, before going back to work

Eligibility
You may be able to get Statutory Sick Pay (SSP), if you have:

been sick for at least four or more days in row (including weekends, bank holidays and days that you do not normally work)
average earnings of at least £90 a week (£95 a week from 6 April 2009)
The days SSP is paid for
SSP is only paid for qualifying days. These are the days on which you would normally work for your employer under a contract of employment. However it is not paid for the first three qualifying days, these days are known as waiting days.

If you work part-time, you must still serve your three waiting days before you can get payment. This means you may not receive a payment at the start of your period of illness.

If you have a varied work pattern, your qualifying days may be different in each week that you work. Please speak to your employer about this.

Examples
If you work Monday to Friday and become sick on a Friday your waiting days will be Friday, Monday and Tuesday. If you continue to be sick, SSP will be paid from Wednesday.

If you work Thursday and Friday and become sick on a Friday your waiting days will be the Friday of the week that you are first sick and the Thursday and Friday of the next week. If you continue to be sick, SSP will only be paid from the Thursday of the following week.
How earnings are calculated
You must have average earnings of £90 a week (£95 a week from 6 April 2009), before tax and National Insurance contributions are deducted. This level of earnings is called the Lower Earnings Limit for National Insurance Contributions (NIC) and is reviewed every year. This is lower than the amount you would need to earn before you start paying National Insurance Contributions.

Your average weekly earnings are calculated over an eight week period before your sickness began. This period may vary slightly depending on whether you are paid weekly, monthly or have other pay patterns. If you have just started your job the calculation may be different, contact your employer for more information.

Only earnings actually paid in this eight week period can be used for the average earnings calculation. These earnings must be subject to National Insurance Contributions or would be if your earnings were high enough and may include:

your normal earnings
bonuses
holiday pay
overtime
other Statutory Payments

Gari is right Jack - Phil was only trying to help the op. I once posted a swear word and even though I put an asterisk into one of the letters I still got an infraction as you should use swear filter...................but swear filter doesnt kick in on the OP.
