Minimum Sick Leave Entitlement increases from 5 to 10 days after July 24th, 2021

It is now confirmed that from 24 July 2021, minimum sick leave entitlements will increase to 10 days per year.

Employees will get the extra five days when they reach their next entitlement date – either after reaching 6 months’ employment or on their sick leave entitlement anniversary (12 months after they were last entitled to sick leave).   If you currently receive 10 or more Sick Days per annum, there will be no increase to your entitlement, unless this is part of your Employment Contract.
