If you get sick, you shall register that you are sick immediately in the electronic timesheet. In addition, you must contact the client and your staffing consultant immediately so that they can follow you up. The right to sickness benefit may lapse if you do not give notice.
When the employee is to register absence, the following list will appear in the time sheet: «Illness before the accrual period», «Illness report from doctor», «Self-report» and «Self-reported sick child».
Self-reports and sick leave messages must be sent immediately as attachments in the portal.
By informing about absence, the employee also gives the client the opportunity to find a replacement and we can register the absence in our systems.
If the employee has had continuous assignments for at least two months, self-reported absence due to sickness can be used. The self-reported sick leave can be used for maximum three full calendar days at a time. From day four, the employee must have a medical certificate from a doctor to be entitled to sickness benefit. When using four self-reports over a 12-month period, the employee will lose the right to use a self-report for six months. If there are more than 14 days between the assignments (does not apply to holidays and shifts), the employee loses the right to self-report and a new two-month accrual period must be earned.
To be entitled to sickness benefit, the employee must have been working for at least four weeks immediately before he / she became unemployed. Absence from work without valid reason is not included in the vesting period.
The sickness benefit is calculated by an average salary during the period before the sick leave. Sickness benefit is limited to 6G (Basic amount of the National Insurance Scheme(folketrygden)). Overtime is not part of the calculation basis. After inactive periods of 14 days or more, the employee must earn the right to sickness benefit again through a new accrual period. Sickness benefits are paid when we have received a valid medical certificate from a doctor.
Does the employee have permanent care for children under the age of 12 and has worked continuously for us for the past four weeks, the employee is entitled to sick pay for a sick child. If the employee has permanent care for up to two children, the employee can receive care allowance for up to ten days per calendar year. For single parents, up to 20 days apply per calendar year. If the employee has permanent care for three children or more, the employee can receive care allowance for up to 15 days per calendar year and up to 30 days as a single parent. Note that this is a total across all employers you may have during the calendar year. In the timesheet you will therefore have to state how many children you have under the age of 12 and how many sick days children have been taken out with other employers this year.
In order to be entitled to a maternity allowance, the employee must have worked at least six of the last ten months before birth. Birth benefits are paid from the National Insurance Scheme (folketrygden) and questions about this must be addressed to NAV.
