I have an employee who has had 1 week of SSP for self isolating followed straight after into 2 weeks of SSP for stress the sick note from doctors overlaps with the self isolating for 1 day, I know they get the full week SSP for covid, but would they need to have the waiting days for the absence for stress? seeing that it has followed on from the absence for covid or would the 2 periods be linked as if it was all normal sick periods? self isolating 01/02/22 - 05/02/22 Sick note for stress 04/02/22-18/02/22 has anyone experienced this before?

Hi,

As the period of incapacity links (8 weeks linking period), no waiting days would need to served for the second period of sickness. 

Thank you.
