Coronavirus (COVID-19) FAQs

The Government have confirmed the end of compulsory Covid-19 isolation from 24 February 2022.  Sick pay claims related to Covid-19 will be treated in the same manner as any other claim.   

  •  Self-certifications will be acceptable as supporting evidence for the first 7 days of absence.
  • Over 7 days the claim must be supported by a Fit Note from a doctor.
  • We will no longer need to receive a copy of a positive covid test to support the self-certification, but employers may wish to have this evidence prior to submitting the initial claim. 

The employee benefit schemes administered by Welplan Ltd. are operated as discretionary trusts and as such decisions on the payment of benefits are made independently to the criteria relating to the payment of Statutory Sick Pay (SSP).
