Update Coronavirus (COVID 19)
Unfortunately the Coronavirus (COVID 19) situation/guidance is changing daily. (Last updated 19 March 2020)
Please see guidance below:
• If your Employee/Nanny self-isolates due to having symptoms of the Coronavirus (COVID 19) they may be entitled to 2 weeks statutory sick pay from day one instead of the usual day four (this is currently £94.25 per week, for a maximum of 28 weeks). Way2paye should be able to claim two weeks back for Clients, however details how to claim are still to be confirmed.
• If your Employee/Nanny cannot work due to their own childcare needs payments are at your discretion, good will practice is to pay as usual.
• Likewise if you or a member of your family have to self-isolate due to the Coronavirus (COVID 19) you must pay your Employee/Nanny as usual and ask them not to come to work.
