# Sick Days

If you’re feeling unwell, we strongly ask you to rest and take some sick days.

First, let your manager know on Slack or by email that you’re sick and won’t be working.

If you want a message to copy-paste, we’ve got your back.

”Hi, I’m not feeling well today. I’ll be off today and should be back tomorrow! [or if you need more time] I’ll be off for a few days, I’ll let you know as soon as I’ve seen the doctor.”

”Hello, je ne me sens pas bien aujourd’hui. Je serai off aujourd’hui mais je pense revenir demain ! [or if you need more time] Je vais demander un arrêt, je te dirai quand j’aurais les dates prévues.”

The administrative side depends on your type of contract.

You will need a doctor’s certificate (arrêt de travail) from your doctor to request official sick days.

  • Here’s what an official “arrêt de travail” looks like

# How to send your certificate

  1. Your doctor will give you a Cerfa document. Please fill out your personal information (name, social security number, address, work address & contact...)
  2. Pages 1 & 2 of the Cerfa document are intended for the Service Médical (= the Social Security center you are attached to → you can find yours on the Ameli.fr (opens new window) website). Please send these pages to the correct center by mail. You have up to 48 hours to do this.
  3. Page 3 of the Cerfa document is intended for your employer. Send it (scan, photo or original PDF file) to @Morgane Neff and/or @Laurène on Slack or by email. We should have your certificate 48 hours after your first day off at the latest.

If you want a message to copy-paste, we’ve got your back. ”Hi, I won’t be able to work these next few days, here’s my medical certificate.” ”Hello, je ne travaillerai pas ces jours-ci, voici mon arrêt maladie.”

If you do not have a certificate, we won’t legally be able to declare your off days as sick days. You can still use your paid time off days or request unpaid leave. In this case, as long as you keep your manager informed you aren’t working, you can clear it up with @Morgane Neff and/or @Laurène when you get back.

ℹ️ Meili is operating under the SYNTEC-CICF labor agreement (convention collective). If you’ve been at Meili for a year or more and your sick leave does not last longer than 90 days, you will receive 100% of your salary. You can find more information here. If you’ve been with us less than a year, you will be partially reimbursed through social security after the 3rd day of your sick leave. This means days 1-3 of your sick leave will be unpaid. You can find more information here.
