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). In order to be compliant with the Sectoral Employment Order (SEO), your organisation must register your staff with a pension that fulfils the conditions (see here).

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.
