If you have worked for at least 3 months:
Your employer must bear the cost of your medical consultation fee.
Your reimbursement for other medical costs, such as medication, will depend on the medical benefits in your employment contract or the company's collective agreement with its union.
If you fall sick during public holidays, annual leave, rest days or non-working days, you will be able to claim reimbursement for medical consultation fees.
Note: Employers are not required to grant paid sick leave or pay medical fees for cosmetic procedures. The doctor performing the examination will decide whether a procedure is for cosmetic reasons.
