Statutory guarantee payment for a “workless day” increases
10th February 2012
From 1st February 2012, the statutory guarantee payment for a “workless day” increased from £22.20 per day to £23.50.
An employee’s right to a statutory guarantee payment for a “workless day” arises if an employer fails to provide an employee with work on a day or shift on which the employee would normally have work and be employed.
An employer will be required to pay a statutory guarantee payment unless:
- Employees’ industrial action is directly or indirectly responsible for the employer failing to provide work.
- The employee has been employed for less than a month.
- The employee unreasonably refuses an offer of suitable alternative work on the day in question.
- The employee does no comply with the employer’s reasonable request to remain ‘available’ for work on that day should any arise.
