So as long as we know...
We weren't discussing who claims more...I think we are all aware that sickness levels are generally higher in the public sector.
Statements do not have to be factual, or based on facts, as long as the statement is "broad"?
You said that it is only the public sector that gets paid when sick these days.
That is plainly a false statement...however "broad".
The vast majority of employees get sick pay, simple, clear fact.
Are you Boris in disguise Big T?
Broad statements seem to get you a knighthood these days so I’ll keep them coming.
Did you actually read what I wrote? Sick pay at bosses discretion is not the same as sick pay written into an employment contract.
Majority of SME’s who make up something like 60% of the employment in this country do not have an official sick pay scheme, whether they actually pay their employees when off sick is a different matter.
Anyway this is now going off topic so we can agree to disagree.
