Are you wondering what is finally here? How we already informed you in the previous issues of Crowe News, in the past the Senate of Parliament was discussing a bill amending the sickness payment system. From July 1, 2019, the so-called waiting period should be abolished. Employees should therefore receive a sick leave compensation for wages or salaries even during the first three days of temporary sick leave (till now the employees was receiving the compensation from the 4th day). What does it mean for employers? Primarily increasing costs in the event of an employee's temporary incapacity to work, which is offset by a decrease in the social security premium rate by 0.2 pp from 25% to 24.8%. Are you interested in other consequences, whether positive or negative, of the amendment of the law? Then read our December Crowe news!
