Maritime workers illness: supplementary communication

What is it?+

In the event of illness, maritime workers are entitled to the following sector-specific allowances, subject to health and administrative requirements:

  • allowance for temporary absolute incapacity due to fundamental illness: due in case of an illness that occurs during embarkation, preventing the continuation of navigation; if the doctor does not deem it necessary, the worker is not disembarked and, in the absence of the administrative requirement of disembarkation, the illness is not indemnified by the INPS;
  • allowance for temporary absolute incapacity for supplementary illness: due in case of illness occurring within 28 days of disembarkation, only to workers on board a ship or a motor vessel carrying a charter or a tugboat on the high seas, or on vessels of more than 200 gross tonnage, engaged in fishing beyond the Suez Canal and the Straits of Gibraltar and the Dardanelles;
  • allowance for temporary incapacity for illness for seafarers under permanent paid contract: due in case of illness occurring beyond the 28th day and not later than the 180th day after disembarkation;
  • temporary unsuitability for embarkation following a common illness: given that the INAIL is responsible for the possible recognition of the benefit for a contingent event constituting an accident at work/occupational disease, the contributions paid by shipowners to cover the benefits for "temporary unfitness for navigation", equal to 0.15% of the declared taxable contribution, are collected in full by the INAIL and subsequently subject to the related accounting regulations between bodies.
