University Sick Pay Scheme:
The University's sick pay scheme provides that if an employee is absent from work through sickness or injury he or she will normally be entitled to payment at the rate of full salary in the first instance (which will be inclusive of any payable Statutory Sick Pay scheme (SSP)), for such period as the department may determine, noting the guidelines given below, which should be adhered to at the minimum. At the end of this period of full sickness pay, a department has discretion to pay at the rate of part salary for a further period. In applying this discretion, departments have been asked to note that the following guidelines for pay during sick leave apply. Service (*) Full pay (*) Half pay (*) First three months 2 weeks 2 weeks Remaining nine months of first year 2 months 2 months Second and third years 3 months 3 months Fourth and fifth years 5 months 5 months After fifth year 6 months 6 months (*)Inclusive of any university sick pay given in the 12 months preceding the latest period of such leave.
In cases of extended sick leave it is possible that payment of full or half pay under the University's own sick pay scheme may be exhausted, but SSP will continue to be due (primarily affecting employees on extended sick leave with less than 4 years' continuous service). You will be informed by your department if this is about to happen.
If an employee is excluded from the SSP scheme, the University will deduct the amount of any short-term ESA (previously, incapacity benefit) payable by the Jobcentre Plus from any salary paid. No deductions shall be made from payments at half pay under the University's own sick pay arrangements, except that where the total amount of half pay plus ESA or other allowances exceeds full pay, a deduction will be made of an amount equivalent to the excess.
