Pay during self-isolation
You will continue to receive pay. This applies to all University employees and employees of its subsidiary companies (WHH Ltd and UECS Ltd). You will not need to self-certificate or provide a medical certificate.
On demand contracts and pay
Any work that has been completed will of course be paid in the normal way. If you have been offered any work in the month that the government advice changes or the University takes the decision to ask staff to work from home, and you are therefore unable to complete this work, you will be paid as if you had worked. Payment should be claimed in the normal way.
Staff will be paid for any agreed shifts up to 31 March 2020 that they were unable to work due to COVID-19.
We realise on demand workers would have been expecting to work up until the end of the summer term on 26 June 2020. Until the lockdown is lifted, they won’t be offered any new shifts, but we are making payments under the government’s Job Retention Scheme for those eligible.
If you are self-isolating or are ill, you will receive SSP during this period of sickness as per your contractual entitlement.
If you are already absent due to sickness and coming towards the end of your paid leave and have to self-isolate, your pay will continue during your period of self-isolation.
If your contract is due to end soon
In this instance we will continue to pay you your normal salary up to and including the day your contract was due to end as if you were in work and able to carry out your normal duties.
