Aspire People adopt the “accrual method” for the way in which you will receive holiday pay i.e paying holiday as and when you take it.

To take your holiday you need to do the following:

  1. Email with the value and pay date.

Please be aware that it is not advised to take holiday in term time because of the school needs.

Sick pay

 At Aspire People we do not penalise workers because they are not full-time employees. Therefore all our contractors and workers are eligible to claim Statutory Sick Pay(SSP). This is paid at the statutory rate and of course the statutory qualifying conditions apply. You will have to meet the qualifying earnings limit set by HM departments. Further information can be found here but please note it is paid:

  • When an employee/contractor/worker is sick for 4 days in row

  • For the days an employee normally works – called ‘qualifying days’

  • In the same way as wages, for example on the normal payday, deducting tax and
    National insurance

Maternity Pay

Maternity Pay(SMP) is also available to Aspire People contractors! This is paid at the HM approved Statutory Maternity Pay rate. To qualify for SMP you must:

  •  Earn on average at least £118 a week

  • Give the correct notice

  • Give proof you’re pregnant

  • Have worked for Aspire People continuously for at least 26 weeks
    continuing into the ‘qualifying week’ - the 15th week before the expected week of childbirth.

If you are not eligible for Statutory Maternity Pay you can fill in an SMP1 form
found on this linkwhich means you can claim SMP from HMRC -

What If I Want to Get Paid Through an Umbrella Company?

Please see the below Umbrella companies we know of that work in the sector and we have had positive feedback from. Registrations with each of these other Umbrella companies are quick and easy and can be done in less than 24 hours.
