These Regulations provide that any person who, without reasonable excuse, contravenes or fails to comply with certain provisions of the Statutory Sick Pay (General) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1982 or of the Statutory Maternity Pay (General) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1987 is guilty of an offence. The penalty for such an offence is set out in section 107(3) of the Social Security Administration (Northern Ireland) Act 1992 (“the Administration Act”).

These Regulations correspond to provision contained in Regulations made by the Secretary of State for Social Security in relation to Great Britain and accordingly, by virtue of section 149(3) of, and paragraph 10 of Schedule 5 to, the Administration Act, are not subject to the requirement of section 149(2) of that Act for prior reference to the Social Security Advisory Committee.

These Regulations do not impose a charge on business.
