the Transition from the current qualifying day provides skiftanställda up to 40% less payroll deductions on the first day of sickness.
Zowi Strong, nurse at Södersjukhuset, working three shifts, with many tiotimmars night shifts in the emergency room. It involves many meetings with the patients ' viruses and germs.
" I have noticed that when I have been sick in a long night shifts, I see immediately a very big difference on the salary. It is reasonable that those who work the toughest of the passes should not have to suffer, and that the deductions now is the same for all.
As the 28-year-old with two years in the profession has Zowi Strong a base salary of 27,500 dollars a month, plus OB. When she works night, she goes the long pass. She becomes sick and misses a tiotimmarspass lost salary for all ten hours worked. Thus, a far greater proportion of her income than what an eight-hour qualifying day will be for the working femdagarsvecka.
– The times I have been sick, it has been well over a few hundred dollars away, so that I barely wanted to look at the pay slip, " says Zowi Strong.
today's rules, for the sjukskriver from a tolvtimmarspass, for example, shift workers within the industry. The 36-hour week and the sjukskriver from one of the three tolvtimmarspass lose a third of their weekly.
How can it work like this? Well, with the qualifying day we had so far, it has not mattered how long or short sessions as someone has sjukskrivit themselves from. It has not played any role in how large part of the working week or weekly wage, as it would correspond to. The employer has simply pulled all pay for a session.
so far, hit harder against the deduction of a long session, for example, one of this week's three tolvtimmarspass with the OB-appendix. Instead of one-fifth of the weekly wage, for those who work a regular femdagarsvecka.
However, from 1 January 2019 to become the change. Then, instead karensavdraget.
Then pay the employer the sick pay from day 1, instead of, as in the day, from day 2. Then pulled a fifth of the sjuklönen for an average working week away. Thus karensavdraget hereinafter the same proportions for shift workers as for employees and hold office hours.
For those who have åttatimmarsdag Monday to Friday does the change usually is no difference, because the deduction is a fifth of weekly rate.
However, there will be a big difference for people with irregular working hours. The new rules mean ”only” 7,2 hour deductions for a tolvtimmarsskift, IF Metall's förhandlingsenhet figured out.
on regelförändringen are those who become sick during the work day. They get a deduction of 20 per cent of a week's sick pay. Today they can get away with a half of a qualifying day, i.e. one-tenth of the weekly wage, if they go home after lunch.
Both the unions which the employers in the Swedish Business community has been positive to the change, because the deduction is seen as more fair towards, for example, care and related workers, industrianställda, police officers, firefighters and more.
However, there is a concern among Sweden's Municipalities and County councils, SKL, to karensavdraget will be more expensive for municipalities and county councils. They are forced henceforth, therefore, let the employees retain a larger part of the salary - at the same time as the long night watches still have to be performed and full salary, and OB paid for sjukvikarierna. The difference, the employer may then stand for.
at SÖS-emergency room think that the health care workers and other smittutsatta professionals, for example, pre-school staff, should have the legal right to be sick without karensavdrag three times per year.
" Since I started at SöS-the emergency room, I have had the winter vomiting disease, and flu each year, and sometimes other infections I may have gotten through the job. It is expensive, notes Zowi Strong.
