Key Points

  • Many employment contracts entitle the employee to full pay during at least a certain amount of time off for illness, either expressly or by implied term.
  • An employee has, however, no statutory right to insist on being paid by his employer during absence on sick leave (apart from any rights to Statutory Sick Pay).
