Sick leave when your registration isn´t finished yet

I have sent in my registration on January 14th and am still waiting for it to be processed. In these new circumstances of Corona, if I take sick leave now (due to another health issue), does my employee get the sick leave pay that they will pay me, and do I get my pay in time? One important detail: I haven´t used up my 14 paid sick days yet...Does the employee get money from you if I take sick leave now?

  • Hello!

    Thank you for your post.

    Please be informed that the first 14 days you are sick, your employer pays you sick pay instead of your regular salary. After that, you can apply for sickness benefit from Försäkringskassan. Some employers do not pay sick pay. If this is the case, you can instead apply for sickness benefit from Försäkringskassan. If you do not know whether you are entitled to sick pay, contact your employer.

    You can apply for sickness benefit while waiting for your registration application to be investigated. The payments will be made after the registration case is finished.

    Best Regards
    Helen Administrative officer
