Sick pay: Duration of sick pay
Source: Industrial Relations Legal Information Bulletin Date:
Where a contract of employment does not specify a limit to the duration of sick pay, it does not continue indefinitely but only for a reasonable period, holds the EAT, in Howman & Son v Blyth. However in deciding what is a reasonable period, Tribunals should consider the limit specified in a national agreement in the relevant industry.
