The new electronic certificate of incapacity for work procedure has been in force throughout Germany since January 1, 2023. This means that the previous paper certificate of incapacity for work will be replaced by a digital solution. Instead of issuing a sick bill, the doctor's office reports the incapacity to work electronically directly to the health insurance fund. The employer then queries the data from the health insurance fund. Find out here what will change for you and how you can report a sick note on the new OVGU employee portal, where you should perspectively find important information for your work at the university in addition to news from the university.
