Permission for employee to have second job while on sick pay clause


Insert this permission clause into your sickness absence policy or contract of employment.

Why clause is useful

This will give you protection if one of your employees either has or wishes to start a second job for someone else while they are on sick leave and are receiving sick pay (including statutory sick pay) from you. By ensuring they ask your permission you have control over the situation. This clause also gives you protection should you find out they have been carrying on a second job without first obtaining your permission.
