New Statutory Sick Leave Scheme

Since 1 January 2023, employees have a right to 3 days sick pay a year. Statutory Sick Pay is paid by your employer at 70% of your normal pay up to a maximum of €110 a day.

You must be an employee and be working at least 13 weeks with your employer before you can get statutory sick pay.

Your employer can have a more generous sick pay scheme, but they can’t give you less than the statutory amount.
