Client in receipt of ESA as SSP has ended 02/07/2018. still employed with original employer.

client has just recently been for her medical. so still in assessment phase; her GP has given her a fit note advising phased return to work. This is to last approx. 6 weeks with client probably working 1 day per week initially..  the wage for 1 day in under ESA assessment phase amount

can you claim via permitted earnings whilst in this phase?

Yes you can. And the sick note still stands regardless of which option the GP has ticked.
