Insurance assessment

Are you considering taking out absenteeism insurance? With an absenteeism insurance, you are covered for the financial risks of absenteeism, i.e. sick employees. Sick employees bring a lot of costs with them. As an employer, you do not only have to continue paying wages for the first two years, but you may also have to deal with loss of turnover, costs for replacement personnel and reintegration costs. Unfortunately, absenteeism due to illness is difficult to deal with and always remains a risk. Therefore, it is wise to insure your company well.

You can calculate the premium for most policies directly online. However, taking out absenteeism insurance is customized, because the premium is different for each organization. That is why you can request a quote without any obligation at Alpina.nl . This way, calculating the premium is taken out of your hands.

How is the premium of an absence insurance calculated?

To calculate the premium, an insurer uses a premium percentage. The premium for an absence insurance can be calculated by multiplying this premium percentage with the total wage costs. On average, the premium is between 1.5% and 5.5% of the total wage costs. The amount of the premium percentage depends on various factors.

Which factors influence the premium of an absence insurance?

The amount of the premium rate depends on various factors:

  • The composition of your staff (age, number of part-timers, etc.)
  • The sector or industry in which you work
  • The absence figures of the last 3 years

Sick employee costs

Many people do not know how much a sick employee costs. Research has shown that a sick employee costs one and a half times more than most organisations think. When your employee is sick, you have to deal with different cost items. The biggest cost is the continued payment of wages. As an employer, you are obliged to continue paying your employee's salary for two years in the event of illness. This is also referred to as the wage payment obligation. Legally, an employee receives at least 70% of his/her gross salary. If your company has signed a CAO, this may differ. Many CLA's stipulate that the sick employee receives 100% of the gross salary in thefirst year and 70% in thesecond year.

In addition to the obligation to pay wages, you will be faced with a number of other costs, such as costs for absence counselling, replacement staff, costs because you may lose sales and costs when the employee is reintegrated. The Central Planning Bureau has made an example of the costs per day for a sick employee. This is based on an average annual income in the Netherlands of €36,500.
