Coronavirus payroll timeline now live

26 June 2020

As so many payroll policies have been impacted by the outbreak of coronavirus, and a number of different government initiatives have been implemented to help the economy through this period of turbulence, Julie Northover has produced a comprehensive timeline, which provides payroll professionals with a list of the key dates that they need to be aware of, and what happened on those dates.

Dates are crucial in terms of how payrolls can be processed if, we take, for example, the scenario regarding the payment of Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) for coronavirus-related absences. Those who are sick with, or self-isolating due to coronavirus are entitled to SSP from day one of sickness from 13 March 2020, but those who are shielding would not be entitled to this until 16 April 2020, due to the different dates on which various pieces of legislation were laid. This timeline aims to provide those working within a payroll environment with a quick and easy-to-use tool to assist them in their work.
