E50 – Damages awarded – Treatment of National Insurance and Income Tax payments
If a claim for damages is wholly or partly successful, any advances are subject to refund and the civil servant's income tax and contribution payments may need to be adjusted. The advice of the Assessor of Income Tax and Social Security Division should be sought in each case.
E51 – Damages awarded – Reckoning of absence for sick absence purposes
Where there has been a successful claim to damages and all or part of the 'advance' has been repaid the period of absence due to injury shall be expunged from reckoning against the maximum periods of paid sick absence as set out in Regulations E14 - E16 and E23 - E26 as follows:
- Assault while on duty: total period of sick absence due to the assault irrespective of result of any claim made
- Accident (on or off duty) due to the negligence of a third party: a period running from the date on which the paid absence due to the injury began, up to the date on which the total sum repaid to the department would be expended when set against the pay advanced.
Where no repayment is made absences due to the negligence of a third party will be treated as sick leave for the purposes of this Section.
Note: Regulations E52 to E55 are blank.
