Sickness Procedures

Should you be unable to attend your temporary work assignment due to sickness you must contact your consultant prior to the start of the working day so that we can liaise with the client appropriately.

The first three consecutive days of sickness remain unpaid. Should your sickness last four days or more you may be entitled to sickness pay depending upon whether you qualify for SSP.

Further guidance on the rules for qualifying can be found at the Inland Revenue website which can be found here:
