Part of the Governments support for businesses during the Coronavirus disruption is the temporary ability for businesses with less than 250 employees to reclaim SSP from the Government.

Government have published more detail on this today, although it should be noted the mechanism for claims is not yet in place, and claims cannot be made yet.

If you are an employer and have had employees off sick due to Coronavirus, then have a read.
