4. Termination – If your employer terminates you (fires you), your employer must notify you at least seven days before the termination date. Your employer must also pay you for the days you work until the termination date.
5. Sick Leave – For every month you work for the employer, you can earn two sick days. These are paid sickness days, which means your employer must pay you for these days. To take a sick day, you must get a medical certificate of sickness from a registered doctor.
