I'm a director of a small family run business and I look after our employee benefits and sick pay. Some of the staff have seen adverts on TV from companies like Aviva and are asking me questions about what our long term sickness policy is.
I need to come up with a proper reply. Can you help give me some ideas on what insurance cover is available or perhaps explain in brief the key rules?

You will have to decide whether you wish to supplement this. Some companies put in corporate schemes to cover full salaries, or long term sick provisions.
We often find that a company will absorb the costs of paying full pay for a period of time, then after a set period, sickness will fall to statutory levels plus a percentage of pay, and then usually 9 months, an insurance company will continue to pay the percentage of pay.
There really are a multitude of options available to you.
