The Coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme has opened for applications.
The scheme allows small and medium-sized employers, with fewer than 250 members of staff, to apply to recover the costs of paying coronavirus-related Statutory Sick Pay for two weeks – worth nearly £200 per employee.
The scheme covers all types of employment contracts, including:
- full-time employees
- part-time employees
- employees on agency contracts
- employees on flexible or zero-hour contracts
After making an application employers will receive the money within six working days.
