Government Reforms Sick Leave Law

Published torsdag 21 december 2006 kl 16.31

Sweden’s parliament has passed a government resolution to reduce the country’s high rate of sick leave and encourage people back into work.

The Riksdag, which breaks for its christmas recess today, passed changes to the sick benefits system, under which people off work sick and who earn less than 33,000 kronor a month, are paid 80 percent of their salary.

Under the new system, the full 80 percent benefits will only be paid to people on salaries of up to 25,000 kronor. Sick benefits for the unemployed will be reduced from a maximum of 521 kronor to 486 kronor.
