How to subsidise sick pay, and find a law firm to help you make compensation claims.
Sick pay is offered in the UK to any full time employee who has to take time off work due to an injury or illness which means that they are unable to work. This money will help you to pay for your living expenses whilst you are unable to attend your regular job, and can also help with things like medical bills.
However, sick pay is often not as much as your normal wage, and if you are living close to your means this can mean that you struggle with money during this time. There are various ways, either through a law firm in North Lanarkshire, Government help or even on your own, that you can subsidise this pay.
- Work from home. Instead of taking sick pay from your company, ask if you can instead work from home until you are recovered. Your employer may actually prefer this idea as then they only have to pay for one person to do the job, and you already know what you are doing.
- Take on another job. If you can find a small part-time job you can do from home, such as writing or graphic design, this can help to subsidise what you are getting from your employer in sick pay.
- Sell your possessions. Most people have a number of possessions in their home which they do not want and haven’t gotten around to getting rid of. You can try selling these online for a little extra cash.
- Look into Employment and Support Allowance. For those who are signed off work by their doctor, Employment and Support Allowance is available and can help to keep you afloat financially.
