Statutory Payments Consultation Group – Minutes of July 2008 meeting publishedMonday, November 17th, 2008
HMRC has published the minutes of the Statutory Payments Consultation Group meeting of 3 July 2008. Among the matters discussed are the following points of interest:
- Statutory Payments Helpbooks are to be renamed. For example, instead of “What to do if your employee is sick”, the E14 will be called “Employer Helpbook for Statutory Sick Pay”.
- Model letters may be provided in booklet E14 that employers could use to notify employees that they do not qualify for SSP where the exclusion reason is not one of those listed on form SSP1.
- A revised Medical Statement (Med3), which will help GPs provide employers with better back-to-work advice and advice on when SSP can stop, is expected to come into use some time in 2009.
