Amount and payment of partial sickness allowance

The amount of the partial sickness allowance is half that of the sickness allowance.

If an employer pays an employee a full-time salary during part-time employment, the partial sickness allowance is paid to the employer. Otherwise it is paid to the employee.

Also when an employee who works two or more part-time jobs reduces his or her working hours, the partial sickness allowance is paid to the employee.

The partial sickness allowance is paid out and taxed in the same way as the regular sickness allowance.
