Sickness benefits

BHM operates two sickness benefit funds, one for the public labour market and another for the general labour market.

These funds offer a range of support to their members, including sickness benefits to compensate for temporary loss of income due to incapacity resulting from illness or accidents. Additionally, they help members in rehabilitation and prevention initiatives.

The funds are financed through contributions paid by employers, ranging from 0.75% to 1% of the total wages, as outlined in the relevant collective agreement.
