Labor Lawspace Sick Pay


The Sick Pay Law deals with the rights of workers during their absence from work due to illness. The illness must be proven by a suitable medical certificate. An employee receiving a monthly salary is eligible to receive sick pay for 1.5 days per month worked up to a maximum of 90 days. By law an employee can use part of his sick leave in order to be with his sick child, sick spouse, sick parent or sick parent-in-law.
Starting from the fourth day, the rate of sick pay is 75% of the employee`s regular wage. For the first day the employee receives no payment. For the second and third days, the employee receives 37.5% of his regular wage day.
There is no obligation by law for an employer to redeem unused sick days although there are collective agreements in certain fields which make it mandatory.
