Statutory Rates Frozen
There will be no annual increase in statutory rates, including maternity pay, paternity pay, shared parental pay, adoption pay and sick pay.
The current weekly rate of statutory maternity pay and other parental payments is £139.58, or 90% of the employee’s average weekly earnings if this figure is less than the statutory rate.
The rate of statutory sick pay is also frozen at the current weekly rate of £88.45.
To be entitled to these statutory payments, the employee’s average earnings must be equal to or more than the lower earnings limit. This amount is also frozen at £112.
