The sick leave is calculated in accordance with Federal Law 255-F3 and amendments 343-F3 and 21-F3. According to these legal acts, the employee is obliged to provide the employer with salary certificates for the entire billing period, which is 24 months.
If these certificates are not available, or the employee has no experience in the billing period, the allowance is calculated based on the information available from this employer. If the certificates are submitted later than the calculation of the allowance, then recalculation is possible.
Employees with earnings for 6 months or more should be calculated based on the amount of actual earnings from which income tax was withheld, divided by the number of actual calendar days in the billing period. If the calculation showed that the actual average daily amount turned out to be less than when calculating, based on the minimum wage, then the benefit must be paid by calculating the minimum wage.
All employees who do not have 6 months of experience must be calculated from the minimum wage at the time the benefits are accrued. To do this, the amount of the minimum wage must be divided by the average number of calendar days - by 29, 4. The resulting number must be multiplied by the number of days of temporary incapacity for work and multiplied by 60%, because 60% is accrued with less than 5 years of experience.
If the allowance is calculated for caring for a child under 15 years of age, in case of inpatient treatment, all days of care must be paid in the manner indicated above, and in case of outpatient treatment only 10 days of care, starting from day 11. The accrual of payments is 50%, regardless of the length of service. That is, the average daily minimum wage should be multiplied not by 60%, but by 50%.
Sick leave payments for pregnancy and childbirth are charged in the amount of 100 for the average settlement period, equal to 24 months, the calculation should be made either from the average daily earnings for the actual period of work, if the experience is more than 6 months, or based on the minimum wage, with the experience of less than 6 months, or if the actual calculation showed a lower average daily amount than based on the minimum wage.
To calculate the allowance, you need to divide the minimum wage by the average number of calendar days (29, 4) and multiply by the number of sick leave for pregnancy and childbirth - for singleton pregnancies by 140, for multiple pregnancies - by 196.
