Sick Leave Survey
The Malta Employers’ Association has issued a survey report on ‘Sick Leave in Malta’ to provide a picture on the utilisation of sick leave by employees. The survey obtained data from 351 respondents covering more than 400 companies in Malta, spread across different economic sectors. This survey was conducted before the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, therefore the results do not reflect sick leave patterns resulting from the pandemic, but rather during times considered as ‘normal’.
