Processing Illness Benefit can be an area of confusion for many employers due to the number of scenarios which can apply:
1. The employer does not pay the employee while they are out sick
2. The employer pays the employee while they are out sick, and the employee retains the Illness Benefit payment from DSP
3. The employer pays the employee while they are out sick, and the employer receives the Illness Benefit payment from DSP
