1005. What is a Work Pattern?
A Work Pattern details the days of the week your employee normally does and does not work. N stands for a non-working/non qualifying day and Q stand for working/qualifying day. To get you started we have pre-set some common working patterns for you, e.g. the first pattern, P1, illustrates a Work Pattern for an employee who works from Monday to Friday. Work Pattern information is necessary whenever Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) calculations are required. Before processing SSP, you must check that the correct Work Pattern is assigned to your employee; This tells the program what days of the week your employee works so that when you enter SSP dates the correct number of days SSP are paid.
