My client recently bought out a director/shareholder of a company and is a 50% shareholder.
On reading the employees contracts he has found that they are entitled to 8 weeks sick pay at their full rate of pay, a further 8 weeks at half pay, from then on SSP. One employee has a bad back and really takes advantage of this.

As a new director/shareholer can my client amend or issue a new contract giving one week at full rate and thereafter SSP.

I should add that the Company has downsized somewhat over the past year and now has only 5 employees, including directors.

Would appreciate your comments, thanks.
