Wage compensation in case of illness of an employee


The amendment of the Labor Code, which will come into force on the 1st July 2019, will abolish the three day “exclusion period” in which employees have not been compensated for their wages in the event of temporary incapacity for work (,,illness”). Now, from the first to the fourteenth day of illness, employees will receive 60 percent of their daily assessment base.

The health insurance scheme from the 15th day of illness remains unchanged.
