Sick Leave

All about Sick Leave, Labour Law, Wages and Salaries and more on Mywage Zimbabwe.

Sick leave shall be granted to an employee who is prevented from attending to her/his duties because he or she is ill or injured or is undergoing medical treatment which was not occasioned by her/his failure to take reasonable precautions.

How much sick leave can be granted?

During any one year period of service, an employee, upon request and supported by a certificate signed by a registered medical practitioner, shall be granted up to 90 days sick leave on full pay.

If, during one year period of service, the employee has used up the maximum period of sick leave on full pay, an employer shall, at the request of the employee supported by a certificate signed by a registered medical practitioner, grant a further period of up to 90 days sick leave on half pay.

If, during any one year period of service, the period of sick leave exceeds 90 days sick leave on full pay and 180 days sick leave on full and half pay, the employer may terminate the employment of the employee concerned.

An employee who so wishes may be granted accrued vacation leave instead of sick leave on half pay or without pay.
