New SSP regulations extend entitlement

The Statutory Sick Pay (Coronavirus) (Suspension of Waiting Days and General Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2020 came into force on 6 July 2020. The regulations:

  • extend statutory sick pay (SSP) to employees who are required to self-isolate because they are in the same ‘support bubble’ as someone who has coronavirus or coronavirus symptoms, where they are not able to work from home – in England, support bubbles are called linked households and, in Wales and Scotland, they are known as extended households. The SSP entitlement based on symptoms ends if and when the relevant individual tests negative for coronavirus.
  • tweak the SSP rules as they apply to those employees who have been advised to shield due to being clinically extremely vulnerable – entitlement to SSP will now cease either at the end of the period specified in the individual’s shielding notification or when that notification is overridden by a further notice to end shielding. Shielding will be paused in England after 31 July 2020, but the regulations also state that nothing prevents an individual’s entitlement to SSP restarting in the event a further shielding notification is sent, thus allowing for the possibility of shielding having to be revived for some clinically extremely vulnerable people if there is a second wave of coronavirus later in the year.
