Changes in Public Sector Sick Leave arrangement mean you have less paid sick leave than previously. Which means your pay reduces to half, or stops completely sooner than before. As a result there has been a rise in claims for short term illnesses.
We’ve responded to this increase in short term claims with a new process – designed to speed up claims if you’re working again, or will be soon.
Because less medical information is required compared to a standard claim, we cut the waiting time for payment.
