About jobs at ABB

Pay

    Okay
  • Only some people get sick pay

    Do ABB pay sick pay?

    Sometimes. Only some people get proper sick pay.

    How we know this

    45% of people say they wouldn’t get paid if they were sick but scheduled to work.

    Based on data from 11 people who took the Breakroom Quiz between January 2022 and August 2023.

    Why this matters

    Everyone gets sick sometimes. You should be able to take time off without worrying.

    At a good job you should still get paid if you’re scheduled to work but can’t due to sickness. Your contract should say how many sick days you can take each year.

    This is more than the legal minimum, which says you should only get paid if you are unwell for 4 full days. See Citizens Advice for more details.
