Casuals Workers at the University of Birmingham are not normally entitled to occupational sick pay. However, as an exceptional measure, if a Casual Worker is absent from work due to either self-isolation or sickness as a result of Covid-19, or if their shift is cancelled due to restricted operations, they will receive pay for any work that has been agreed and scheduled up until 9 April 2020.
For work that cannot be undertaken in this period, Hiring Managers are asked to confirm with Casual Workers what work has been agreed and scheduled and will therefore still be paid. Hiring Managers are also asked to ensure that their Casual Workers are aware that the deadline to submit their timecards to be paid for work scheduled up until 9 April that cannot be undertaken due to Covid-19 is 09:00 on Tuesday 5 May.
Casual Workers may also be eligible to claim Statutory Sick Pay (SSP), further details of which are available here on the government website.
Only work that cannot be undertaken in relation to Covid-19, either due to restricted operations or because the individual is self-isolating or unwell, is covered by this policy.
