How should you call in sick?
If you are too ill to work, you must call in sick. This is important not just for you but also for the company you are working at because it means that all kinds of arrangements then have to be made. These may include finding a replacement for you, as well as arranging the continued payment of your wages during the period you are off sick. We refer to calling in sick as 'applying for sick leave'.
Who should you call in sick to?
You should call in sick by contacting your manager at the company you are working at and the Adecco Absenteeism Centre on +31 (0)88-3746306. The Adecco Absenteeism Centre will ensure that your sick leave is properly arranged and will help you recover quickly.
If you have made other arrangements with Adecco regarding calling in sick, you should comply with those instead.
Contact details of the Adecco Absenteeism Centre
The Adecco Absenteeism Centre can be contacted on:
- Telephone number +31 (0)88-3746306
- On working days: 08.00-13.00
- In emergencies: 05.00- 00.30 (daily)
NB: It may be that you have been sent an adapted absenteeism protocol because you are working for a specific client. If this absenteeism protocol is applicable, you should comply with it and the times it refers to.
When should I call in sick?
You should call in sick as quickly and as early as possible. If you are scheduled to work in the early morning, you should call in sick before 9.00 a.m. If you are going to start work later that day, you should call in sick by no later than three hours before your working day starts.
If you are too ill to telephone, ask somebody to do it on your behalf. It is important that this is done punctually and clearly by contacting your manager at the company you are working at and the Adecco Absenteeism Centre on +31 (0)88-3746306, otherwise your entitlement to continued payment of your wages will lapse.
Continued payment of your wages
As long as you are ill Adecco will pay you every week for the hours you are ill until the end date of your employment contract. At the end of your employment contract you will receive a benefit under the Sickness Benefits Act, which will be paid out by Visma Idella, once every four weeks. For further information please refer to the CLA for Temporary Workers and the Adecco staff regulations.
What happens after I have called in sick?
You will receive a confirmation that you have called in sick (sick leave). Among other things this confirmation will state that you will have daily contact with the Adecco Absenteeism Centre during the first week of your absenteeism in order to discuss your recovery. If you are off sick for longer than a week, an Adecco Absenteeism Specialist will contact you to provide further supervision during your absenteeism.
What to do when you feel better
Of course, we hope that you will get better soon so that you can return to work. Once you have recovered, you should telephone the Absenteeism Centre on +31 (0)88-3746306 to tell them you are better.
