Finally, the state chamber should discuss the increase in the so-called children’s sick days. This year, mothers and fathers should also be able to use these if they have to look after their children themselves because of corona-related restrictions at schools and daycare centers and therefore cannot go to work. The number of possible children’s sick days will be doubled from 10 to 20 per parent. An increase from 20 to 40 days is planned for single parents. A receipt from the care facility concerned is required for this. The regulation is to come into effect retrospectively on January 5th.
The amount is 90 percent of net earnings.
