Absence report

Should you due to sickness or accident be absent from work, you are entitled to continued payment of (partial) wages. However, you are expected to comply with certain obligations. These obligations are detailed in the following rules. We request that you thoroughly familiarize yourself with these instructions and would like to remind you of your responsibility to observe the relevant rules. Should you fail to do so, you may be penalized.

Reporting sick

It is of the essence that the UT is informed of your absence due to sickness or accident as soon as possible. You are therefore to observe the following rules:


As soon as you know you are unable to come to work, but at any rate before 09:00, you are to call in sick with your manager or substitute manager. Staff members working irregular hours are to call in sick no later than two hours prior to the start of their work day.

Your manager will discuss the following with you:


the expected duration of your absence;


any adjustments required for you to return to work;


any work you can still perform;


any ongoing affairs/work that needs to be taken over by a colleague;


how you can be contacted.


Should your manager deem this necessary, they will contact the rehabilitation coordinator. Should more substantial advice be required, you will be called up for the company doctor's surgery.


Your manager will also contact you within one week of your sickness report to schedule follow-up contact appointments. Follow-up contact moments will always take place within one week of the previous contact moment.

You are expected to keep to those appointments and inform your manager on your own initiative of any changes in your situation.


Within the framework of the employer's obligation to provide sickness absence counselling and rehabilitation support, the employer (manager) is obliged by law to keep a rehabilitation file from your first day of absence. This file is of course processed in such a way that your privacy is in no way compromised.
