Statutory Sick Pay: modelling costs and reforms

Published: May 2022

This WPI Economics report provides an overview of modelling and analysis for a report commissioned by Unum and published separately. It builds on previous work undertaken by the author for Scope and the Social Market Foundation. It contributes to understanding of the business costs of the Statutory Sick Pay system in the UK, and how changes to the system could feed through into business and government costs. It also assesses the potential economic and Exchequer benefits of an improved system of support for people needing to take sickness absence.
