Due to renewed restrictions on public life and measures taken to limit the COVID-19 epidemic, including home schooling, restrictions on childcare and restrictions on public transport, the Slovenian Government extended the measure of salary reimbursement to employees not working due to quarantine and inability to perform work due to force majeure.
The amount of compensation is unchanged and amounts to 80 percent of the average employee’s monthly salary for the last three months, whereas the amount of compensation may not be lower than the minimum wage.
Due to child care, parents of children up to and including the fifth grade of primary school are entitled to compensation, if the parents cannot provide other care.
During the period of extended measures (until 30 June 2021), employers are entitled to reimbursement of the full amount of compensation paid to employees. Employers must claim the reimbursement no later than eight days from the beginning of the employee’s absence from work.
