6 months sick pay sounds great on paper but management want to avoid paying by trying to catch staff members out. This involves parking outside staff members houses and spying on them.
if you are sick you receive full pay
The best thing about Royal Mail sick pay is that pay at full rate even for long term sickness
If your not well. Or your health is bad. Royal mail lookafter you by giving you sickpay uptil 6 months.
Only offered once you have been working at the company for 12 months
Royal Mail pay full sick pay when off sick.
The sick pay benefit is almost too generous and does nothing to stop some employees to just take sick absence as they know they will be paid regardless
Worst thing about Royal Mail sick pay (full sick pay upon 12 months employment and access to a full range of OHS support) is it is abused by too many employees.
Pays from day1 - good for the employee, difficult for managers to prevent short term absence
It's money for being off sick but if you're off long term you need more money probably
