    Hello Kirstie MacKenzie

    Thank you for this question.

    We would generally not advise about the rules around paying the SMP. Redundancy agreements will be handled by the customer/ HR team.
    May we suggest that you discuss with ACAS etc if you are unsure. There is some more info here https://maternityaction.org.uk/advice/redundancy-during-pregnancy-and-maternity-leave/ 

    That said, should you wish to pay the remaining weeks out as a lumpsum upon termination, you can edit the current period payment and tick 'lumpsum' - this will push the remaining balance of SMP onto the current payslip as a lumpsum. Screenshot below.

    Hope this helps.

    Best,
    Lauren

    Hi Lauren

     

    Thank you for this.  I haven't had a request for a lump sum payout, it is the opposite.  I was hoping to get some guidance on how to continue to pay monthly but somehow register that associate was no longer employee.  Is that possible?

    Many thanks

    Hey Kirstie MacKenzie

    We can only advise on how the Fourth system works, please do check the official guidance on continuing to pay SMP to an employee who has been made redundant.

    If an employee record has been terminated on Fourth, they will no longer appear on payroll in future months and SMP will cease to calculate. Not possible, unfortunately.

     

    Best,
    Lauren
