Introduction to Statutory Payments
Statutory payments are a common area of confusion for payroll staff. Legislation for Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP), Statutory Paternity Pay (SPP), Statutory Adoption Pay (SAP), Statutory Shared Parental Pay (ShPP) and Statutory Parental Bereavement Pay (SPBP) is frequently changing, and although Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) has remained largely unchanged for the last twenty years, misunderstandings between statutory and occupational entitlement are common.

Clear explanations are given on qualification, entitlement and calculation of the above statutory payments and leave. Comprehensive documentation is provided, including current statutory payments tables.
