Am I entitled to private health insurance and under what terms?
The provision of private health insurance (except for overseas employment) will be considered by HM Revenue and Customs as a taxable benefit.
With all contractual benefits, your employer must not unlawfully discriminate against members of staff, for example by making decisions to give or withhold the benefit for a reason relating to one of the protected characteristics, such as sex, sexual orientation, disability, race, religion or age.
If the contractual benefit is available to full-time workers, it should also be extended to comparable part-time workers, unless your employer can justify treating part-time workers differently on objective grounds.
