Q+A Continued payment of wages during illness

Your employer will continue to pay your wages for a maximum of two years if you are ill. You will receive at least 70 percent of your wage while you are ill. Please note: the daily wage that is used for the calculation is subject to a maximum limit. After you have been ill for two years, you will be subject to an assessment to see if you are entitled to an occupational disability benefit on the basis of the Work and Income according to Labour Capacity Act (WIA).
