Increase to Statutory Payments April 2013

As many of you will be aware, April each year normally brings an increase to a number of statutory payments, 2013 being no exception.

With effect from Sunday 7th April, Statutory Maternity, Paternity & Adoption pay will increase from £135.45 to £136.78 per week.

With effect from Saturday 6th April, Statutory Sick Pay will increase from £85.85 to £86.70 per week.

In order to qualify for these payments employees must achieve the Lower Earnings Threshold which also increases on the 6th April from £107 to £109 per week.

For Alcumus HR clients, your online Policy & Procedures Manual has been updated to reflect these changes.
