Factor sick leave into pricing

Unfortunately, some staff will abuse sick leave. 

If you have a large number of staff your costs are going to increase as a result of the doubling of the sick leave entitlement to 10 days. 

You might wish to calculate how much this is going to cost you and try to factor it into price negotiations, otherwise it will come straight out of your profit. Those involved in labour-intensive industries such as cleaning, will need to consider the implications of the 10 days sick leave.

You will have to start granting the extra five days two months after the legislation is enacted, which is expected to be about mid year. Each time an employee gets to their anniversary of sick leave entitlement, it will go up to 10 days.
