Following the recent legislative changes around Statutory Sick Pay, and the government’s decision to replace the reimbursement of the £88.45 per week from NI contributions with an annual allowance of £2,000 (If you, like many employers have not yet claimed this benefit, please follow the link it is very quick and easy!! https://www.gov.uk/claim-employment-allowance)
A staggering 1 million employees are off sick for more than 6 weeks every year and the cost of Employer Sick Pay is £9 Billion per annum.
Working with Medex Protect Limited, we have put together a new low cost insurance plan, which provides Comprehensive Absence Management protection as well as Sick Pay Insurance (funding your £88.45 payment from day 7 to the end of week 28).
Quality Occupational Health is ordinarily both difficult to find and expensive to purchase. Medex Protect will provide effective Absence Management and if they are unable to get the employee back to work within 7 days, they will put their money where their mouth is and fund the SSP up to the end of week 28 of the absence.
Other Key benefits include:
- Pre-commencement screening for new employees – to comply with the Equality Act 2010
- Employee Assistance Programme – to offer emotional support for employees and their families
- Risk Assessments (DSE, Expectant Mother, FLTM, Night Worker)
- 2 Face to Face GP Consultations per employee (via Secure App) once the employee has been unable to work for 5 days
- Occupational Health Intervention and Reports
- Reimbursement of the £88.45 SSP from day 7 up until the end of week 28
At a cost of just £10 per employee per month, most employers with 20 or less staff can claim the NI Allowance, fund this peace of mind policy and still have change!!
As a justified Business Expense, the cost of the plan can be offset against Corporation Tax. We believe that this Absence Management and Sick Pay Protection Plan represents a robust solution for our clients, and we would welcome the opportunity to discuss this with you, at your earliest convenience
