Statutory sick pay and maternity pay guidance
26 January 2017
Two areas of guidance have been updated:
- Statutory Sick Pay: employee circumstances that affect payment
- Statutory Maternity Pay: employee circumstances that affect payment
The following paragraph has been inserted into GOV.UK guidance:
Your employee has been overpaid or underpaid
If there are over or underpaid earnings affecting the AWE which disadvantages either you or the employee, check if there is documentary evidence of an agreement as to the amount that should have been paid. If there is, use the agreed earnings to calculate the AWE and if not, use the actual earnings.
