Statutory Sick Pay inquiry: MPs to question Employment Minister and employers and insurers—Wednesday 31 January at 9.25am

The Work and Pensions Committee will take evidence from the Minister for Employment, Jo Churchill MP, as part of its inquiry examining the effectiveness of Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) and how it might be reformed to better support the recovery and return to work of people who claim it.

Before questioning the Minister and officials from the Department of Health and Social Care, MPs will hear from organisations with an employers’ perspective of SSP. Questions are likely to focus on how well the current system is working, how sickness impacts on businesses of different sizes and the case for reforming SSP.

Previously the Committee took evidence from academic researchers and employee representatives.
