Thank you for the quick reply. As I said we are very small organisation. I really don't want to cause ructions if I have no rights to do this. So if I alert them it will be my line manager/CE who will manage the request.
Would like to know So that it doesnt look like i am trying to pull a fast one and make myself look like I'm squeezing leave out of them I'm not entitled too.
You would have to follow sick procedures, such as phoning in on your first day off sick (first day of annual leave) to be entitled, I believe, but as long as you have followed this then as i understand it you can change your annual leave to sick. It's not something employers are ever happy about though.
Whether you get anything other than SSP for the period will depend on your company policy. Are you usually paid for days off sick?
