Your Obligations as an Employer

The Construction Workers’ Sick Pay Trust is not available as a standalone product. It is only available via the Construction Workers’ Pension Scheme (CWPS). Membership of CWPS also satisfies the conditions of the current Sectoral Employment Orders (Construction and Electrical Contracting Sectors 2021), in respect of pension, Sick Pay and Death in Service benefit for all workers registered with CWPS.

If you are a member of CWPS and your staff wish to make a claim via the Sick Pay Trust, you must:

  • Keep your contributions to CWPS up to date, ensuring your employees are covered for their benefits.
  • Ensure all eligible employees are registered in the Scheme so they have the same entitlements.
