In the event that the person presents symptoms or is considered to be a “contact-case”
Anyone insured at S.P.M.E. being symptomatic or in case of high-risk contact will have to approach a Liberal Doctor or an Occupational Doctor of the Office of Occupational Medicine (OMT) in order to get an initial work interruption or an extension and warn his hierarchy of the time of absence.
The insured must communicate to S.P.M.E. part 1, duly completed and signed, and to his superiors part 2
- the prescription for an initial interruption of work within 48 hours of the effective interruption of work
- the prescription of the extension of the work interruption no later than 48 hours before the end of the stoppage preceding the new interruption
In the event that the person is tested positive for COVID-19
The person declared positive for Covid-19 must reach his doctor through teleconsultation to get an initial work interruption or an extension of it.
Upon receipt of the prescription, the person must send it in a scanned version by email to [email protected]
At the same time, the doctor must send the person a hard copy of the prescription so that he signs it and then sends part 1 to the S.P.M.E. and part 2 of this document to his hierarchy within the time limits mentioned above.
Note: without a prescription for an initial interruption of work and/or a prescription for its extension by the doctor, the insured’s absence from his workstation is declared unjustified and his salary is not paid to him during the duration thereof.
In the event of non-compliance with the aforementioned transmission deadlines of the initial work interruption prescription or its extension, the S.P.M.E. does not cover the absence of the insured for illness. This absence is then unjustified medically and does not give rise to the payment of daily allowances.
