Medical Leave - Chicken Pox

Question

Dear all,

A staff was given 3 weeks ML for chicken pox.  Do it still falls under ML?

For us it's outpatient sick leave. If the ML is more than 14 days, some companies treat it hospitalization leave, as part of employer benefits.

For our company, we will treat this as HL instead of ML.

My company converts the medical leave for chicken pox into hospitalisation leave.

For these long illness, hospitalisation leave could be used even if not warded in hospital. Just that some GPs does not know and put under MC.

For such genuine cases, I would recommend for the balance ML be deducted from HL, under HR's discretion.
