Course Description

Legislation is changing rapidly in regards to employers being required to provide employee with accrued sick time. In 2020 with the COVID-19 pandemic states and federal have updated legislation on paying sick pay. It began with city legislation and has now moved to states such as California that employers must comply with.  Employees who lose wages as a result of illness or a nonwork-related accident are eligible to receive disability payments, also known as third-party sick pay.

Most employers provide some degree of wage protection for employees who miss work Due to personal illness or injury. Sick pay paid directly by an employer generally is treated as ordinary wages, subject to withholding for federal employment taxes. FICA taxes, however, apply to such payments only for the first six months.

If sick pay is provided through a third party, such as an insurance company, income tax withholding does not apply unless requested by the employee. For purposes of FICA, the third-party payer of sick pay is considered the employer and is responsible for withholding, paying, depositing and reporting taxes on sick payments unless this responsibility is transferred to the actual employer.

Any portion of sick pay paid by a third party that is attributable to the employee’s own premium contribution is not wages and is not subject to withholding. However, when premium contributions are made with pre-tax dollars under the employer’s cafeteria plan and deferred from taxation, then any sick pay paid by a third party to the employee is subject to FICA and FIT withholding.
