Changes to salary compensations refunded by the Health Insurance Institute of Slovenia
On 4 February 2022, two amendments were published in the Official Gazette related to calculating salary compensations refunded by the Health Insurance Institute of Slovenia. The amendments relate to Article 137 of the Employment Relationships Act (ZDR-1C) and Article 29 of the Health Care and Health Insurance Act (ZZVZZ-R). The amendments to both laws entered into force on the 19th February and apply from 1 March 2022 onwards.
The published changes determine the shortening of the period of payment of compensation at the expense of the employer from 30 to 20 days, for the reason of absence 01 - illness, 02 - injury outside work and 05 - injury by a third party outside work. The mentioned change also effects two or more consecutive absences from work due to the same illness from 30 working days to 20 working days. When the first absence is at the expense of the employer for the previously mentioned reasons in March 2022 and later, it must be for 20 working days followed by a break shorter than 10 working days and then a new absence from work for the same reason, which is confirmed by the doctor's decision.
ZDR-1C also introduces changes to the third paragraph of Article 137, whereby the employer pays salary compensation from its own funds due to delays 01, 02 or 05 in an individual calendar year for a maximum of 120 working days for 2021 (and previous years) and 80 working days for 2022 and future years. For longer absences, namely from the 121st working day for 2021 (and previous years) or the 81st working day for 2022 and the following years, the employer pays the salary compensations which is refunded by the Health Insurance Institute of Slovenia, but provided that the absence was decided by an appointed doctor.
