Sick leave rate down

THE AVERAGE temporary sick leave rate fell from 3.66 percent in 2004 to 3.30 percent of the overall working population in Slovakia in 2005, according to data from Slovakia's social security provider, Sociálna poisťovňa.

The average duration of temporary sick leaves fell moderately as well, from 38.46 days in 2004 to 36.92 days last year, the SITA news agency wrote.

The highest sick leave rate of 9.69 percent was reported in eastern Slovakia's Stará Ľubovňa district, meaning that on any given working day, one in ten people was off sick. The Sobrance district followed with 6.70 percent.

On the other hand, three of Bratislava's five districts reported the lowest sick leave rates ranging from 1.12 to 1.47 percent.
