ILLNESS AND LEAVE
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I’M ILL?
If you are ill, report this to your EUR supervisor and to EURflex. Do this before 9:00 and when doing so, provide the address where you are convalescing and your phone number. It is important that you can be reached at the telephone number you provided when you registered. If this information has changed in the interim, please state this when reporting ill. Have you recovered from your illness? Notify EURflex immediately. Also be sure to notify your supervisor that you are again available for work.
WILL I BE PAID WHILE I’M ILL?
If you are ill you will receive a sickness benefit of 91% on average, taking into account a single waiting day. You will not be paid for this waiting day.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I FORGET TO REPORT THAT I AM ILL? WHAT NEXT?
The first thing you should do is immediately notify your supervisor. Then call EURflex and we will see which actions need to be taken in this specific situation. Delaying reporting ill could have consequences for the payment of the sickness benefit.
I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE A DAY OFF
Would you like to take a day off? Ask your supervisor for permission to take a day off. You can be paid for a day of leave from your accrued provisions by noting the number of hours in a hourly time sheet under requested leave hours provision.
WILL I BE PAID ON HOLIDAYS?
Does a national holiday coincide with your scheduled working day and is the university closed? Then you will be paid for this holiday. The number of hours you will be paid will be calculated based on the average number of hours you have worked on that day during the past 13 weeks. You will receive additional information about this in a mailing sent by the central organisation. If it is your opinion that you are eligible for payment on this holiday, please inform EURflex of this by sending an email.
