The Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs has published a recommended procedure for employers when providing leave for work to the employee for testing, vaccination, or accompanying a family member to vaccination, in relation to the occurrence of the COVID-19 disease. In all of these cases, these should mean excused absence of the employee from work, regardless of whether the employee submitted himself to testing or vaccination voluntarily or in relation to the performance of work. Leave from work or leave from work with reimbursement of wage or salary pertains to the employee under conditions stated in the respective items of the government decree.
