Questions from our Forum – 22/08/11Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011
Each week we receive a number of payroll questions on our forum, and here are this week’s batch. Can you help with any answers?
An employee was sent an SSP1 to claim benefits in September last year after running out of 28 weeks of SSP. Should the employee tell us if her benefits ran out when she returned to work in February?
She became sick again last week.
Should we process SSP again as she had no sick absences in the last 56 days not knowing if her benefits have stopped?
Further questions from our forum:
- An employee, who receives childcare vouchers, is transferring from one employer to another in the same group. Is he subject to the new reduced tax relief rules?
- An employee was absent sick after fasting for Ramadan. Is this a reason for not paying SSP? Are there discrimination issues?
- Can tax on Mileage Allowance Payments involving a fuel card be adjusted through the payroll?
