January 23rd, 2014 by admin

There are around 10.5 million people employed in the private sector; 56% are entitled to paid sick leave, 41% are entitled to maternity/ paternity leave and 19% receive medical aid benefits (LFS 2013 Q3)

    Less than 20% of employees have medical aid! Staggering. A real indictment on the cost of private healthcare. And I wonder how many within this 19% only have a hospital plan.

  2. John says:

    Why are 100% not entitled to paid sick leave? Only permanent staff? I’m confused.
