  • People don’t get sick pay

    Does Care Plus pay sick pay?

    Not always. Most people don’t get proper sick pay

    How we know this

    60% of people say they wouldn’t get paid if they were sick but scheduled to work

    Based on information from 5 job reviews

    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.
