The sequence of events



Sickness in recorded in Hours. 
A 7 day SSP pattern is set with all days as qualifying using hours recording.
There is the assumption that a working day is 8 hours. 
You have set up the Pattern Time Unit is set as Hours with 24 Time unit multiplier, assuming 24 hours in a day (or should this be 8 for the working day).

APP-PAY-51073 SSP qualifying patterns must be whole days.
