Medical Leave Chicken Pox

Medical Leave – Chicken Pox

Question Dear all, Staff was given 3 weeks Medical Leave for chicken pox.  Does it still fall under Medical Leave? Tina     Reply 1 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. AL     Reply 2 For our company, we will treat this as HL instead of ML. Munjit Kaur     Reply 3 My company converts the medical leave for chicken pox into hospitalisation leave. Jocelyn     Reply 4 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. Dksw     Reply 5 For such genuine cases, I would recommend for the balance ML be deducted from HL, under HR’s discretion. Azirah
