A compulsory scheme operated by an employer. Payments are made to an employee for up to 28 weeks of absence as a result of sickness. There are two rates of statutory sick pay, the applicable level being determined by the employee's earnings. The two qualifying conditions for SSP are: there must be a period of incapacity for work, there must be one or more qualifying days.The first three days do not count and so it is only on the fourth consecutive day that an entitlement to SSP begins.
