I've recently taken the Payroll Mock exam and trying to work through the answers to make sure I understand the one's I had wrong.
I've see this topic in several other posts but can't see any actual answer so hoping someone can explain how the following is calculated
An employee usually receives £4000 per month for Mon-Fri working days.
Pay is being calculated for May 15
Employee is off sick 6th May to 19th May inclusive (2 weeks Wed to Tuesday)
For the period off sick the employee only receives SSP
Assume that employer was notified, no prior sickness and employee meets eligability
Work out the Sick pay due and the basic gross pay due
I worked out the sick pay entitlement ok but strugling to get the correct gross basic pay and would be grateful if anyone can help.
I've tried several ways but can't even get within £20 of the answer given :(
