Legal Update – Pay & Pensions

Statutory sick pay

Statutory sick pay is going up to £85.85 per week from 6 April – not £135.45 as I said in my “In the pipeline” article. Statutory maternity, paternity and adoption pay will be £135.45 as stated.

Pension auto-enrolment

Updated guidance on workplace pensions and auto-enrolment issued by the Pensions Regulator on 10 February.
