Statutory Sick Pay

Volume 480: debated on Friday 17 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many employers have incurred a penalty for refusing or repeatedly refusing to pay statutory sick pay in the last two years; what the level of the penalty imposed was in each case; and how long after the initial claim was made by the employee was the fine for refusal imposed in each case. (226318)

I have been asked to reply

HMRC set up a centralised system to record Statutory Payments penalties on 1 April 2008. Since then no penalties have been recorded for the offence specified.
