Increase in sick leave entitlement


From 24 July 2021, sick leave entitlements will increase to 10 days per year. Employees will get the extra five days when they reach their next entitlement date – either after reaching 6 months’ employment or on their sick leave entitlement anniversary (12 months after they were last entitled to sick leave).

There is no change to the maximum number of sick leave days you can hold at any one time – 20 days.
