Update on Government Employment Legislation: Changes to Sick Leave Act 2022
Dear Employers and Candidates,
We’re thrilled to share the latest update on the Government’s revisions to the Sick Leave Act 2022, effective January 2024. These changes aim to improve employee welfare and ensure fair treatment during health-related absences.
Key Highlights of the Amendment:
- Employees with 13 weeks of continuous employment now qualify for five days’ paid sick leave.
Rate of Payment:
- Eligible employees will receive compensation at 70% of their usual daily earnings, capped at €110 per day.
- To access this benefit, employees must provide a valid medical certificate from a licensed healthcare practitioner.
These changes mark a significant move towards prioritising the well-being of our workforce and cultivating a healthier work environment. Employers can now support their staff during illness, fostering higher morale and productivity.
It’s crucial for employers and employees to understand these amendments for compliance and a smooth implementation.
At Hall Recruitment, we’re committed to guiding both employers and candidates through these changes. For further assistance or to understand how these modifications might affect you or your organisation, reach out to us.
Stay updated, stay informed, and let’s continue championing a thriving and supportive employment landscape together.
