This is very good for the UK
It is available and you can "buy-up" greater coverage for short or long term disability.
Full Sick Pay up to 8 weeks
Only get sick pay after probation. Was forced to take my grandads funeral off on probabtion unpaid and had it docked off my pay.
I was looking into getting additional cover and my personal insurance broker discussed what is common at other companies in his experience - when I looked it up, Elsevier's was significantly below this.
It's the national standard as far as I can gather.
OK, but not included in probation period (typically 6 months)
