Sickness calculation SE

If an employee is sick, then he gets a deduction on his wages and a payment for sickness.

Days 1-14: deduction and payment per hour.

Days 15-90: deduction and payment per day.

Days 90+: deduction per day.

Next to that is it also possible that the employee has a karensavdrag. For more information about this, see the following article:

Time Registration

You can add the sickness in the time registration. When you are sick for a full day you can add this on code 1004 (days). When you are sick for less then a day you can add this on code 1005 (hours).

Note: The automatic Nmbrs calculation for sickness is only triggered when you use code 1004 or 1005. When you use the codes for 25%, 50% or 75% there will only be a deduction but no payment will be done. 

Sickness calculation 

For the first 14 days there will be a deduction on the payslip on wage code 2341 and a payment on wage code 2343. This will be based on hours. When you are longer sick then two weeks the deduction will be on code 2342 and the payment will be on code 2344. This will be based on days.

For more information about the codes and the calculation see this table:

Hourcode  Description Notes Output wage code
H3410 Deduction per hour for days 1-14 Hourly wage

-100 %
W2341
H3430 Payment per hour for days 1-14

+80% from output wage code 2341

W2343
H3420 Deduction per day for days > 15 PT salary / factor

factor = 30,4167
W2342
H3440 Payment per day for days > 15

If PT salary < 27687 then daily rate is:

0.1 * PT Salary / hours code factor setting

W2344

   

If PT salary > 27687 then daily rate is:

(0,9 * PT salary / hourscodefactorsetting)
-
(0,8 * sick 15 day factor * Prisbasbelopp / 365)

Rounded to 4 decimals

 

W2344

Note: Prisbasbelopp = 46500 and the sick 15 day factor = 8 (2019)

Example case


This employee works 100% in january but he is sick from the 14th of january onwards. The following payslip will appear for the employee:

 

W2341: 50.000 / 173,33 = -288,47. The hours are 80 because in the first 14 days he is working for 10 days (weekends excluded) * 8 hours = 80.

W2343: 80% of -288,47 will be paid out. So this is 0,8 * 288,47 = 230,78. The hours (80) remain the same.

W2342: 50.000 / 30,4167 = -1643,83

W2344: (0,9 * 50.000 / 30,4167) - (0,8 * 8 * 46500 / 365) = 1479,45 - 815,34 = 664,11.
