Sick leave costs once again the responsibility of the employer for 30 working days

Based on the Law on Intervention Measures in the Field of Health, Labor, and Social Affairs, as well as Health-related Matters (ZIUZDS), the obligation to pay sick leave compensation to the employer is reintroduced, lasting for 30 working days (previously 20 working days).

The law also introduces a maximum compensation, paid by mandatory health insurance, amounting to 2.5 times the last known average monthly gross salary in the Republic of Slovenia.
