Tell the Government about your experiences of Statutory Sick Pay
No disabled person should feel stuck needing to work while unwell. But for some people, it’s a case of feeling stuck working through sickness, or coming financially unstuck as a result of sickness absence.
Nearly 30 years ago Statutory Sick Pay was introduced to protect employees from facing a financial penalty for being unwell. But the current sick pay system is out of date, inflexible and does not provide enough financial support for disabled people when facing a period of ill-health or a disability which can change over time.
Scope is responding to a Government consultation on Statutory Sick Pay (SSP). If you have had experiences of the sick pay system, we’d love to include your views in our response.
