6th April 2016

For the 2016/2017 tax year there will be no increased to Statutory Maternity, Paternity, Adoption and Shared Parental Pay, Maternity Allowance or Statutory Sick Pay, and so the figures will remain the same as the current tax year.

Statutory sick pay rates will remain at £88.45 per week.
