  1. Hi, Looking for some help and advice, my partner has been off work for the last 6+ months with a long term illness (Mental Health). Her employer has now stopped paying her SSP. We have made a successful claim for PIP and also now receive tax credits. We haven't received an SSP1 form from her employer but are they required to send one or do we need to request one? Also how can I find out if she is entitled to anything else? Thanks in advance for your help with this, its just unfamiliar territory and need help and guidance. Have a good day
  2. Could anyone advise me about the accrual system please? This is regarding a casual worker but employed on PAYE with different shifts/days every week, averaging 40-48 hrs a week. No contact or statement of employment has been given. Payroll have a formula to work out holidays accrued per hour worked, which is fine, but payroll appear to have total disregard for UK employment law, ie. casual workers aren't entitled to SSP, and SSP can't be paid in the same week as holiday pay!!! my first query is does holiday entitlement accrue during a holiday day?( if 10 hours holiday pay is given
  3. Hi me and my partner have a bit of a problem and not sure what to do I'll go into a bit of the back story so bare with me. I stopped working in November 2015 due to issues with my right hand and was diagnosed with Parkinson's March 2016, I put a claim in for PIP May 2016... Meanwhile my partner was the sole earner from November 2015 and we were getting WTC to top up her wages. My partner went of sick from work with depression the 4th July 2016 and started getting SSP 11th July 2016 we then made a claim for HB/CTB and still getting WTC, then I got my PIP claim (£55.10 Standard rate Da

  6. I am hoping someone can give me some advice. My partner has been signed off work since September and has all his sick lines etc from doctor. His boss has point blank refused to pay SSP, has threatened us and has said he doesn't want him back but not given him a p45 or SSP1 form. We are dealing with a lawyer with regards to the refusal to pay SSP and unfair dismissal and the cases are progressing. However we have just been told that he cannot get ESA because he should be getting SSP and we have no way of proving that he is not getting it. His ex employers are not nice people, I don't need
  7. Hi, My husband works full time, I'm a stay at home mum...but now looking for work and have been for the last few months. We do claim tax credits but I don't actually claim a penny for myself as I'm not entitled to anything due to my husband working. I also don't really know anything about the benefits system as before I stayed at home, I always worked. My husband is currently off sick from work. He picked up a full wage on Friday (which is a month in arrears for sick pay) and has been informed that he is not receiving any company sick pay, just SSP and at the end of September wil
  8. I work 4 hours a day but these 2 weeks i have been off ill. I have got a sick note from my doctors so do i need to send it in to anyone? I get paid at the end of the month so does that mean i will receive that payment? I get £10 an hour. thanks for any advice in this matter!
  9. Good afternoon Hope someone can help. I am new on here. Currently working for my current employer for nearly 4 years, been a good worker however I have been signed off for stress at work for 4 weeks now due to what I would view as bullying from my line manager. This is an ongoing issue that HR are well aware (and witnessed once) of and I am very anxious about returning to work and am actually considering leaving for another job. Anyway last month I was off for 2 weeks of my monthly pay period backed up with sick notes and I'm 2 weeks into being off this month. Last month my wage was
  10. Hi all, I am desperate for some help on where I stand please. I was a bus driver for Arriva London North, I was interviewed around this time last year and at interview declared I have severe asthma that I treated at home usually with rescue packs but on some occasions these did not work so I needed further treatment meaning absence. I was hired with the full knowledge of my illness. I was placed at a garage in March 2013 after my training and started actual employment as a driver rather than a trainee. I have been absent three times for around 3 week periods and once or
  11. Hey all, I've been off sick for a few months now and today was told they do not think I will be paid for the April bank holiday. Now as I understand 28 days per year is a legal requirement and I get 20 from work and the 8 public holidays.. So regardless of if I was on SSP I should still get 28 days as on SSP you still accrue holidays as you normally would. Thanks!
  12. Hi, I have put in a claim for SSP with my employer mid december and despite numerous emails from myself asking about it they have mostly ignored me and fobbing me off. My first day off was the 5th of November and I gave them my fit note on the 19th December and not heard back since. I have had another month off since that period and despite working for a smallish company they don't seem to be doing much. My time off was because of a disability and connected to it. In the mean time I have had letters threatening me with gross misconduct. I have been with the company
  13. Hello there, I was wondering if I could get advice. I have been on long term sick from February, and work have caused trouble for me from the start. I am involved in a long struggle with my employer over money. They also do not believe my medical problems and went as far to call me factious and claiming my sickness was not genuine. (they basing this on a medical I had who was assessing me on a incorrect problem) They stopped my SSP after 13 weeks claiming my sickness was not genuine.( HMRC got it reinstated for me) While this was being sorted the gave me two payments of SSP "accide
  14. My husband had skin cancer on his nose 2 years ago and had surgery to remove and recover the area with a skin graft. Two years later he is very unfortunate to get another skin cancer 1 inch down the nose. Not related, just very very unlucky we are told by doctor. His Employers at the first one "take as long as you need its ok" and on full pay. This time, after giving them over a months notice, he was told the day before the op "you have to take sick days, of which you have (x) 4 days then the rest of any time off you take holidays, inluding next years, otherwise go on SSP. How does
  15. hi guys...

  16. Something that's been worrying me for a while... I work limited hours because of ill health. I'm coping at the moment but I have one day contracted and do one or two (at the moment two) extra days which I claim for as extras. One of them is due to a colleague cuttng her hours, the one that's temporary is due to another colleague leaving. (That job will soon be advertised but as a four day job). If I'm off sick I only get paid for the contracted day. About two years ago I was very ill and that illness lasted a month. Financially I was okay during the month as I claim for the extra hours at
  17. Hi there, Really needing help with this issue! Currently, i own my own hairdressing business. I employ 4 staff members. One of my staff members had been acting inappropriately at work, e.g bullying other members of staff, personal appearance and attitude, turning up late for work, which forced me to give her a numerous verbal warnings. Almost 4 weeks ago now, she turned up on the busiest day of the week, seemingly under the influence of alcohol, i spoke to her about his and told her she will be given a final warning in form of a letter when she returns and was told to go home for the rest
  18. Hi there! I'll try and keep this short but it's a bit complex. I am currently experiencing a relapse in M.E. (CFS). I last had it 9 years ago and it took me about 18 months to get right. I have been signed off by my GP for just over 4 months. My 28 weeks SSP ends on Sept 17th 2012. My current employer did not want me to return until I could manage one full days work (7 hours) which I explained could be some way off achieving. They were happy to run to the end of the SSP period and see how I was and even wait after that for me to get fit enough to return. I am awaiting an ap
  19. Hi All, I really hope someone can help me here. My attendance in work has been irregular over the last year and a half. My employer sent me an SSP1 form saying they couldn't pay me SSP from Jan 2012 and have started claiming ESA from March 2012. However I returned to work for a couple of weeks after Jan and had another SSP payment from work in May 2012. I phoned HM Revenue last week to renew my tax credit's and told them my occupational pay will cease in August 2012 but will still be on the books (they are keeping my job open for me until Jan 2013 thankfully due to ill-health). Anywa
  20. My wife has been for some time now and she received a letter from her employer saying that she will no longer be paid whilst off sick. I've read somewhere that she may be entitled to SSP. She has worked for the employer for 18+months. Can someone explain, simply, how SSP works and how to get it?
  21. Can my daughter claim ssp off her employer shes only bank staff but usually works fri sat sun. Thanks in advance for any replies.
  22. Easier to do a few posts as have several issues! MY SSP is due to run out, when do i put in my ESA claim? I am off with depression and anxiety will i be able to claim? Worried...
  23. Hi all, I'm a bit confused with the whole thing. I was in a bus accident and my gp has signed me off (2 x 2 weeks notes, and 1 x 4 week note.) til the end of this month, possibly longer. I'm £1.30 off the minimum cutoff for SSP so I cant get that and I apparently earn too much for ESA cos I get WTC. So I was told to send my Sick notes in to get my NI covered while I'm off which is fine, but I dont understand why I'm being requested for a medical when they state I'm not entitled due to earnings. I've read a lot of awful stories about people with disabilities failing and quite frankly I hav
