Statutory Sick Leave and Illness/Injury Benefit in 2024

May 14, 2024

Due to a high volume of queries from members in relation to Illness Benefit, Injury Benefit and Statutory Sick Leave in 2024, Ibec has recorded a webinar with the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment and the Department of Social Protection on the topic. This is an is an invaluable opportunity for employers to hear about how the increase in the number of days of statutory sick leave in 2024 impacts illness benefit 'waiting days' for all employees who have more than 13 weeks of service (including those employees covered by more favourable company sick pay schemes). 


The webinar also references recent case law under the Sick Leave Act 2022.
