If your employee is hospitalized for 20 days, and 4 of those days are Rest Days and Public Holidays, how will we calculate his/her Medical Leave Wages?
Medical Leave Wages under Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA) are not payable for non-working days (e.g. Rest Days, Public Holidays), and thus such days should be excluded accordingly. This is the same for the normal Sick Leave and Hospitalisation Leave, where non-working days are excluded as well.
