Illness

The loss of earnings indemnity is equal to 80% of the daily wages without overtime.

In the event of partial incapacity, the daily indemnity is proportional provided that the worker still has a capacity of at least 25%.

The right to payments following a 2-day waiting period is as follows:

Uninterrupted work period of up to 3 months:
60 days over a 360 day period

Uninterrupted work period of 4 to 6 months:
120 days over a 360 day period

Uninterrupted work period of over 6 months:
180 days over a 360 day period.

In case of illness the employer shall contribute 50% of the loss of earnings insurance premium which covers the above-mentioned indemnity.

Workers may, within 90 days of the end of the employment relationship, request to be individually insured under the employer’s loss of earnings collective insurance cover.
