Sick Pay - per Hour, Not per Day

The tripartite council, held on Monday, proposed a change in the payment of the sick pay. The idea was given by Social Minister Biser Petkov. If a person works on shifts, it is possible that he works more than the standard 8 hours. However, he will receive the same amount of payment. The idea, proposed by the minister, is to pay per hour, not per day.

Changes can be made by amending the Labour Law. Neither the trade unions nor the employers seem particularly willing to have such an amendment.

Confederation of Independent Trade Unions of Bulgaria expressed the view that this could not happen because, in the case of a sick worker, the employer could say that he had hired him for 8 hours despite the shift.

Both trade unions and employers approved the offer about a leave to be granted forĀ one of the parents who adopt a child up to 5 years, or for a lone adopter to transfer that leave to one of his parents.
