Full sick pay after 6 months
you can only call sick a certain amount of times even with a doctors note and then it will be unpaid
Its based on a score system so it's not worth calling in sick for 1 day
Very algorithm driven / formulaic, but ultimately flexible.
6 months sick pay feels like a good deal
Very generous and flexible sick pay
I've never had any problem with getting sick pay when I've had to call in sick. You just have to follow reporting procedure and when you're back at work, fill in a form confirming you're fit to return to work. Above all, I will say that I've found my managers friendly, supportive and accomodating. If you do run into health related difficulties, it's important you keep your manager in the loop.
