HR Review - HALF OF EMPLOYERS ARE FAILING TO COMPLY WITH RECENT SICK PAY LEGISLATION

GRiD, the industry body for the group risk protection sector, has warned that many employers are falling foul of sick pay legislation instated last year. 

New research has revealed that one in two employers still need to comply with new legislation linked to sick pay which was introduced in 2020.

The Employment Rights (Employment Particulars and Paid Annual Leave) (Amendment) Regulations 2018, which came into force on 6 April 2020, mean employers are now compelled to tell their staff, on day one of employment or before, what their entitlement to any sick pay is.

However, many are failing to complete this entitlement. Almost three in 10 (28 per cent) are still reviewing their communications and protocols whilst one in 10 (10 per cent) are aware of this change but have not taken any action. 

A further 7 per cent admitted they were completely unaware of this change in legislation whilst 5 per cent were not sure how they would adapt to the new rules.
