I am currently working my notice, and took a few days off sick (the entire office seems to be unwell). I've been informed that they will not pay me for those days, because I am on my notice period.
Does this sound legitimate? I thought as an employee all benefits continued whilst one is working one's notice.
EDIT: I should say that my notice period is four weeks. So from reading this page on Baines Wilson, cited below I think it is up to the employer as to what they pay, if any, because
If the contract of employment obliges the employer to give notice which is at least a week more than the statutory minimum notice period, the employer does not need to make any payment during the notice period. For example, if the employee had been working for 4 years and their contractual notice period was 12 weeks, they will not be entitled to any pay during their notice period if they were on sick leave.
