sick leave more than 3weeks
One of our staff contribute to company 1year plus, consider to permanent worker, he's was taken more than 3weeks of sick leave, the reason for absent is eye problems and visual disturbances. Medical leave certificated has been issue by doctor.
1) During for this 3weeks sick leave, should we pay for wages ? Our company entitlement for Medical leave 14days per year, but now the employee already been taken 7days are not included for this 3weeks.
2) Let's say if the employee continous to absent being this illness problem, should we pay for wages ? if yes, employer have to bear how long for this cases ?
Thanks, hope to reply soon..
