Sick Leave

If you are sick, you don’t have to work. If you have a doctor’s certificate ("Arztzeugnis") you are only allowed to work as much as stated there. To ensure all your duties are covered during your sick leave, you can follow the checklist in the next section.

Checklist on Sick Day

  • Inform your team and People Operations.

  • If you know that you are going to be sick for a longer period of time, inform the team about the next time you will update them regarding your health.

  • Create auto reply in SOGo if you know you will be absent for longer period of time.

  • If you are on-call, notify the Operations work group (via RocketChat). They’ll find a replacement for your shifts.

  • Ensure that any appointments with customers and colleagues will be cancelled properly.

  • If you are sick for more than 3 consecutive days, you need a doctor’s certificate ("Arztzeugnis"). Provide it to People Operations.

After Back to Work

Log Absence in Odoo

See How to Record Leave Requests and use the Time Off type "Sick / Medical Consultation".

If you have a doctor’s certificate ("Arztzeugnis"), attach it as "Supporting Document".

General considerations

Doctor’s appointments are to be scheduled for off-peak hours or, in the case of part-time employees, for days off.

If this is not possible, the absence must be recorded in Odoo as Sick / Medical Consultation.
