Ill make more: expert feared Problem through short-time working

To date 1. April, in Germany, around 2.1 million by law, sick Employees work insured written unable. The goods of 840,000 more than the long-term average, such as the "world" reported. The sheet relies on Figures from the Federal Ministry of labour and an evaluation of the Munich-based Ifo Institute.

Ifo expert speculated about the reasons for high increase in

Timo Wollmershäuser, head of economic research at the Ifo Institute, told the blade: "The Sickness was at 6.5 per cent, much higher than the average of the April months of the years 1998 to 2019, which was 3.9 percent."

Why is that exactly, is open. The number of Corona-Infected does not explain the sharp increase, because the goods and is only a few ten thousand. It is quite possible that many workers left out of fear of contagion "as a precaution" on the sick list. This went on for the 20. March is particularly easy, because the Insured could request a certificate of incapacity for Work (AU) from your doctor by phone.

the Ifo expert Wollmershäuser suspected for the rapid increase in sick leave, a calculation of many workers. The Reasoning behind this: recipients of sick pay get much more money on account than Employees with short-time working money. Whether this explains the increase in the sick leave really are speculation. However, a Sample calculation shows, therefore, the Ifo expert expresses his suspicions.

ill-written get six weeks of continued payment of wages

example: , The short-time working is money for Children currently, about 60 percent of the last net earnings. Who deserved so 2500 Euro net, gets a € 1500 , short-time working money.

The sick pay, the rules are entirely different. Sick leave received from their employer for six weeks, their wages to be paid 100 percent more.

This means that Our pattern of workers is related to its 2500 Euro net income and not the 1500 Euro short – time working, money- making a difference of 1000 Euro per month.

sick of money of funds is higher than short-time work money

After six weeks, from the 43. Day, the health insurance funds for the continuation of payment of Sick leave pay. This performance is sick of money. There is money is also higher than the short-time work.

The AOK writes on its website: "the height of The calendar's daily sickness allowance depends on your regular income. In General, 70 percent of the gross, but no more than 90 percent of net.“ In the process, one time payments, like Christmas money would be taken into account. The allowance is capped: The maximum legal amount is on 109,38 € per day limited.

example: Our of the above employees is related with 2500 € net income according to the sick pay calculator of the AOK, a calendar, daily, gross sick pay of 75 Euro per day.

the cost for social security will remain at the end of a day 65,98 € net. The results, extrapolated for 30 days 1979,40 Euro per month.

The difference between short-time work allowance and daily allowance in this example 479,40 Euro per month. However, the allowance increases the tax rates of the recipient ("progression"). This means: the Bottom line is that a long-term sick, the sickness only with a certain tax swabs collected.

Again: the fact That many of the workers can only, therefore, to call in sick to collect more wages than with short-time working money, is a lower position. As probably, may be that many of them were sick, because they are among the so-called risk groups.
