What is sick leave allowance?

An employee who is not entitled to a full salary during sick leave, will accumulate sick leave allowance.

Sick leave allowance amounts to 12,5% of the employee's base salary in the 4 weeks prior to their sick leave.

If the employee earned 10.000 kr. in the 4 weeks prior to the sick leave and the employee is not entitled to salary during illness, they will have the right to 1.250 kr. (12,5%) of sick leave allowance.

If the employee is entitled to partial pay during holiday, then you can deduct the regular holiday allowance from the calculation of sick leave allowance. Like this:

The employe's salary 4 weeks prior to illness: 10.000 kr.

The employee's salary during illness: 5.000 kr.

The employee's saved up holiday allowance under illness: 5.000 x 12,5% = 625 kr.

The employee's entitled sick leave allowance: 10.000 x 12,5% = 1.250 kr.

Thus, the employee will receive the following in sick leave allowance the first month of illness:

1.250 kr. - 625 kr. = 625 kr.
