Some bad news

As of April 6th statutory sick pay – can’t be claimed by small employers from HMRC.

The situation now means that small employers will have to meet full cost of statutory sick pay – some will cut it back. Some might be able to carry on as they were as the £2,000 national insurance allowance should provide them a bit of cover.

However for individual employers this doesn’t apply. They’ve been told they should develop a contingency fund from the money they get to cover any sick pay costs.

So people who get their budgets from the councils to employ PAs will know either have to cut the workers pay or the amount of hours of care they get.

So bad news for PAs
