Sick Leave Certificates

Ask your doctor to provide you with a sick leave certificate if you require one for work or school

As an employee or student, you must prove your sickness through valid medical reports and/or medical certificates in case you need time off for recovery. An employee should report to his employer within two days of his sickness. This is in accordance with Article 82 of the Federal Law No. 8 of 1980 regulating employment relations in the UAE (the ‘Employment Law’), which states: “Where an employee contracts an illness otherwise than as a result of an employment injury, he shall report his illness within a maximum of two days and the employer shall thereupon take the necessary steps to have him medically examined immediately for the purpose of verifying his illness.”
At Medicline, you may be issued a sick leave certificate by DHA after your telehealth medical consultation.

Why ask for a sick leave certificate?

Sick leave certificates are an important aspect of healthcare because they provide employees and students with the time they need to rest and recover before they return to their daily routine. The certificate means that there is a valid reason for the absence and is also required by most employers. As we all know, going to a hospital or clinic can take up a lot of time and can leave you feeling even more exhausted. With Medicline, you can now consult with a registered doctor online and receive a sick leave certificate promptly on your personal email.

Receiving a sick leave certificate for your health condition is easy at Medicline.

At Medicline, the sick leave certificate service is easy to use. Once you have consulted with the doctor, they will determine how many days you need to take off and will send the certificate directly to your email. You can then forward the email to your employer. The entire process is quick, efficient, and most importantly, private. You no longer need to worry about travelling to a clinic, waiting in long queues, or sharing your medical information with others.

Medicline’s sick leave certificate service extends beyond just taking time off for a cold or flu. If you have a chronic illness that requires frequent absences, Medicline can work with you and your employer, school or university to create a flexible work or study arrangement. They understand that your health is a top priority and will do everything they can to ensure that you are able to perform your duties while getting the rest you need.
