Attestation of Medical Certificate for Sick Leaves
Attestation of Medical Certificate for Sick Leaves allows
authentication of sick leaves, medical reports, and sick leave certificates
issued by private or governmental health facilities within the country,
regardless of their duration, in order to submit them to employers. An employee is entitled
to a sick leave of not more than 90 days per year, only after the end of
probationary period. However, during the
probationary period, the employee may get a sick leave without pay, subject to the
approval of the employer and based on a medical report issued by the medical
entity that stipulates the necessity of the leave.
Note: The above provisions are subject to conditions and do not apply to sick leave because of occupational illness.
On the other hand, the employee is ineligible for a paid sick leave in the following situations:
· During the probation period
· If the illness directly arises from the misconduct of the worker, such as the consumption of alcohol or narcotics
· If the worker violated the safety instructions in accordance with the effective legislations in the UAE, and the rules set out in the firm's regulations, which the employee was informed of.
Notifying your employer of a sick leave
According to Article 31 of the UAE Labor Law, the employee must notify the employer about his sickness within maximum three days and submit a medical report on his condition, issued by the medical entity.
Can an employee be terminated on grounds of sickness?
An employer may not dismiss an employee or give him a termination notice while the employee is on sick leave. If the employee uses all of his 90 days’ sick leave and has not been able to report to work afterwards, the employer may terminate his services. In such a case, the employee shall be entitled to the end of service benefits in accordance with the provisions of the labor law.
