Sick Notes - Part Two

A parent will be issued a sick note when they need to stay at home to take care of a sick child.  When taking care of a family member up to 60% of a person's salary is covered by the state from the 1st to the 9th calendar day.  So no complete loss of salary for the first three days.

The payment from the state is for when you take care of someone at home.  If the family member is hospitalised then the payment is interrupted.

Taking care of a family member used to pertain to only one person but the law was recently changed so that parents can replace each other.

Single parents in Czechland are covered up to the 16th calendar day.

In Germany, parents get 10 days to look after sick kids.  While single parents get up to 20 days.
