Rehabilitation and support

First day certificate Investigation

Before you as an employer can decide whether an employee must present a first day certificate from the first day of sick leave, an investigation must be done. The investigation can be carried out with the help of Falck, or by your own organization.

If your own organization has carried out the investigation, you activate the service and attach a copy of the investigation and the decision. The employee can then contact Falck to issue a first-day certificate. Activate first day certificate
