The days of isolation will continue to be considered sick days, at least until October 28th


The High Court ruled last night (Thursday) that it accepts the state’s request that the current procedure according to which the days of isolation are considered sick days (as determined by the Ministry of Health with the onset of the corona crisis) will not be canceled today, but only from October 28.

The prosecutor’s office replied to the High Court that the state needed 28 days in order to legislate the agreement reached between the Ministry of Finance, the Histadrut and the presidents of employers and businesses (headed by the president of the Manufacturers’ Association, Ron Tomer).

In doing so, it effectively rejected the applications filed today by the other original petitioners – the Nursing Services Basket, the Industry and Craft Association and the cleaning companies ‘organization who demanded compliance with the original ruling on the grounds that the Treasury had spent enough time so far at employers’ expense.

In addition, the judges rejected the requests of the business sector presidency, headed by Dubi Amitai and the National Workers’ Union to join as a “required party” in the proceedings and oppose the postponement of the ruling and noted that “there is no room for applications at this stage.” The panel that made the decision consisted of Supreme Court President Esther Hayut, Uzi Vogelman and Alex Stein.

The current situation imposed all actual funding on the employers who paid for the isolation days for employees. Now the summary made earlier this week states that the first days of isolation will be partially funded by the employee and the rest of the days will be divided equally between the employer and the state. Opponents of the agreement are demanding compensation for all the months the employers have borne the burden alone as well as greater consideration for small businesses.
