In principle, an employee is entitled to compensation in the event of illness, which is referred to as continued payment of wages in the event of illness. This is formally regulated in the national ordinance for health insurance.
A national ordinance is a law adopted by the government and parliament together. Before a national ordinance can be adopted, the government must seek advice on the proposal from the Advisory Council. A national ordinance therefore has the same force as a law.
You can find the legal information regarding this national ordinance in the various annexes.
