The Employers' Mutual Insurance Scheme: changes in the reimbursement procedure

You are an employer and your employee is on sick leave due to an illness or an accident at work?

In this case, as an employer, you have to continue paying your employee's salary until the end of the month during which the 77th day of incapacity for work occurs within a reference period of 12 consecutive months.

The 77 days of absence do not have to be consecutive.

As from 1 January 2018, in order to be entitled to a reimbursement of your employee's salaries by the Employers' Mutual Insurance Scheme, you have to send the original medical certificate submitted by the employee (copies are no longer accepted) upon specific request to the Joint Social Security Centre (CCSS).

The CCSS has sent a note to all employers to inform them about this change.
