Just three days ago, changes to statutory sick pay, maternity, paternity and adoption pay took place.
The following increases were introduced on 7 April 2013:
- Statutory sick pay increased from £85.85 per week to £86.70 per week.
- Statutory maternity, paternity and adoption pay increased from £135.45 per week to £136.78 per week.
The move is welcomed by many and it is considered as overdue by family focused non goverment organisations.
