Xero Statutory Sick Pay from day one now live

Xero have confirmed that the update to SSP has now been released.

This means that, in line with the recent legislative changes regarding self-isolation, now when you create a SSP leave request, you have the option to specify if the request is due to self-isolation.

When you select ‘Yes’, the existing three day waiting period rule is ignored, and employees are paid SSP from day one.

However, if this has already been processed in a pay run, you’ll need to Revert this pay run to Draft and Reset it, to ensure the new changes flow through. The relevant pay run can then be re-posted as normal.
