Where an employer pays the employee while they are out sick, but the employee receives the Illness Benefit payment directly from DEASP (i.e. the employee does not give it to his/her employer):
Employer reduces the employee's salary by the value of the Illness Benefit they are receiving so he is merely topping up the employee salary to their normal periodical salary or the alternative as dictated by company sick pay policy.
Employee claims and retains the DEASP Illness Benefit themselves
Employer must import the amended RPN file immediately
