Recently there was an annouchment from Dubai Health Authority that sick leave certificates in Dubai have to be issued electronically with effect from 1st May by health care faciltiy with the patient bearing cost of AED 60/-. However, they might reduce or waive off the charges which is still under consideration.
Normally, our employees especially daily paid workers are being asked to submit these kind of certificates if sick for better clarity and as proof. but they are not willing to take up these charges claiming that this is for company records and proof purpose.
I would like to know what is your opinion and how you tackle at your work place? Do you reimburse these sick certificate costs?
Thanks in advance for your response!
