Ask your manager to send you your contract and a copy of your employee handbook.
Every employer has different policies around illness. If you’re on long-term sick leave, it’s important you know how long your employer will keep paying you, and how much of your usual pay you’ll receive. This can help you plan your finances in advance, and prevent a crisis later on.
If you don’t feel comfortable talking to your manager about your sick pay, ask for someone in HR to do this. Or if your bank has an occupational health team, speak to them. You can also get impartial advice from Citizens Advice, ACAS or from your union rep.
