Fijians who tested positive to COVID-19 will not have to worry about sick leave.
Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said during the Supplementary Appropriation Bill 2020 COVID-19 Response Budget.
“To shift the burden of sick leave off of businesses and ensure employees do not have to use their leave, the Government will pay 21 days COVID-19 leave for low-income Fijians who have tested positive for the virus,” he said.
