Special high-risk protection
Special high risk protection means that your employer can receive compensation for your sick pay costs if you are at risk of having long periods of illness or of being sick often. If you are sick often, you can also skip the qualifying period.
Am I entitled to special high risk protection?
You are covered by the special high risk protection if it is likely that illness or a disability will cause you to be
- sick often (more than ten times in one year), or
- sick for a long period of time (more than 28 consecutive days).
