    Most (all?) of us have sick pay entitlement if 6 months on full pay followed by 6 months on half pay.

    If you go into the second 6, do your pension contributions only count as half?

    As superannuation is a %, I suppose so, yes.

    And don't forget that, whilst on sick leave, people also (laughably) accrue holiday entitlement. I have personally known two people who certainly knew how to work the system. They had their "year off" (both being what you might call "barrackroom lawyers), returned to work and then gleefully told their colleagues that they would then be going "on their hols"........

    That's EU law for you . Thank Sr Pereda.

    I know how to work 'the system' as you call it, too. (I call it 'the law', but then I'm just picky.)

    You continue to accrue entitlement to annual leave while you are on sick leave and maternity leave.

    Thanks for that. I certainly wasn't expecting it to be the case. I suspected your 6 months on half pay would have counted as 3 months' employment.
