Usually. Most people get proper sick pay

Good
57% of people say they would get paid if they were sick but scheduled to work

Based on information from 7 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.

No. People don’t get paid breaks

Bad
17% of people say they get paid breaks

Based on information from 6 job reviews

Why this matters

A good job should have paid breaks.

You should be paid for all your time at work, whether you’re on a break or not.
