Absence due to illness
On the first day of absence, staff (or someone on their behalf) are required to notify the head of department (or delegate) before 10am.
The following procedure is only applicable to staff members on the university payroll:
Apart from calling in sick by notifying your employer, you must fill out a sick leave form. If you are absent for one day only, you may fill out this form yourself. Otherwise the attending physician completes the form. Within 24 hours you send parts A and B of this form to the Medical Control Agency Encare (Pr.F.Rooseveltlaan 306, 9000 Gent). Part C stays in the possession of the employee.
In case of absence due to an accident or occupational illness, a specific sick leave card must be filled out (AGDB-1) which must then be send to the Administrative Health Department of your county. Failing this, you are unlawfully absent from work.
During your absence a visit from a medical officer may be possible - every day of the week between 8am and 9pm.
