Leave due to sickness is a major financial risk for employers. If an employee is absent for a long period of time, the costs may increase considerably.
You can simply finance the continued payment obligation from the current resources of your business operations. But it is also possible to take out sickness absence insurance. This allows you to fully control the financial consequences of absenteeism. In addition, it provides cover for indirect wage damage: replacement, training, reintegration and sick leave.
