  • Most people don’t get sick pay

    82% of people say they wouldn’t get paid if they were sick but scheduled to work.

    Why this matters

    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.

    Based on data from 10 people who took the Breakroom Quiz between March 2021 and September 2022.

    Why this matters

    A good job should give you good training when you start, not just drop you in at the deep end.

    This means that you’ll be happier and more productive from day one and shows that your employer values you.

    It’s also very important if your job involves anything that could be dangerous. Good training from the outset keeps you and your team safe.

    This means you’ll be able to build on your skills and experience, and earn more money.
