Covid-19: derogatory sick leave, on February 1, it's over!


The government has put an end to the derogatory regime which provided for the absence of a waiting period for work stoppages issued for cases

Sick leave without a waiting period in the event of contamination with Covid-19 is over.

A decree issued on Friday and published this Saturday in the Official Journal confirms the end of "derogatory work stoppages" issued to positive people from February 1.

These derogatory work stoppages had already been restricted since January 1 to people who tested positive and who could not continue to work, including teleworking, note

The derogatory regime, in place since the start of the epidemic and extended since, could remain in force until December 31, 2023, at the discretion of the government.

It was finally decided to end it next month.

Thanks to this provision, employees on sick leave for Covid-19 automatically benefited from daily allowances and the salary supplement paid by employers, without a waiting period.

Isolation still mandatory for positive people

However, this does not mean the end of work stoppages for people who test positive for Covid-19.

They will still be able to obtain sick leave issued by a doctor if necessary, but this will be subject to the classic waiting period to obtain daily compensation from Social Security and the additional salary paid by the employer.

It will no longer be possible to request it directly on the dedicated Health Insurance page.

In the event of a positive test for Covid-19, positive people must always isolate themselves for a period of 7 days (vaccinated people) to 10 days (non-vaccinated people).

Isolation can be lifted after 5 or 7 days depending on the vaccination status, if the person has not shown symptoms for 48 hours and tests negative.
