SI 2021/1013 amends the Statutory Sick Pay (Coronavirus) (Funding of Employers’ Liabilities) Regulations 2020 (SI 2020/512) and the Statutory Sick Pay (Coronavirus) (Funding of Employers’ Liabilities) (Northern Ireland) Regulations 2020 (SI 2020/513).
The instrument closes the Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) Rebate Scheme with effect from 30 September 2021 so that any absence related to coronavirus occurring after 30 September 2021 will not be eligible for the rebate. It also provides a three-month administrative period for businesses to make any remaining claims for eligible SSP costs incurred up to 30 September 2021; this administration period will end on 31 December 2021.
The Regulations come into force on 30 September 2021.
