Coronovirus: do you have to pay employees who self-isolate

Employees are entitled to receive SSP (Statutory Sick Pay) where they’ve self-isolated on medical advice and pursuant to a written notice. If they voluntarily self-isolated, or they don’t have a request or notice in writing, then they’re not entitled to SSP. If the employee works from home during their self-isolation, they won’t get SSP as they’ve not abstained from work.
