Statutory Paternity Pay


T

Tyno Gendo

I was just wondering if anyone knew why the following clause is bound to
SPP..

- you must have continued to work for the same employer without a break
for at least 26 weeks by the 15th week before the baby is due, or
employed up to and including the week your wife, partner or civil
partner was matched with a child

I fall just short of this, yet I was in employment before joining my
current employer and obviously still paying Tax and NI, so how do the
justify saying you can't have pay unless you have been with the current
employer for so long, why not just "continuous employment for so long"??

Just another tax man "get out clause"?

Luckily I have a very understanding employer who's just going to let me
work from home on full pay, but it stink of government scam to me :D

Has he supplied you with the form SPP1?

You would have had the option then of seeing if you were eligible for
income support during your paternity leave.

To quote form SPP1 - "If you qualify for paternity leave but not SPP
you may be able to get Income Support while you are on leave.
For more details contact your Jobcentre Plus office and ask for claim
form A1. Show this letter to confirm you are
not entitled to SPP. To find your nearest office, look in the The
Phone Book under Jobcentre Plus."
