Statutory Payments cannot be reduced for a salary sacrifice.

Salary sacrifice is the employee sacrificing their right to salary – they cannot sacrifice their right to a statutory payment.

Statutory payment must be paid in full.

The employer would need to check if the employee had a contractual entitlement to the benefit – if they did, the employer would need to continue to provide the benefit without being able to recoup the cost from the employee’s stat payments.

The employer can contact ACAS for help on whether the employee has a contractual right to a benefit.

Thank you .
