Sacked? Run to the Doctors Quickly
Daily Pravda reported about a scam today where employees who have just been sacked make their way swiftly to a doctor who declares them unfit for work, meaning the notice period is suspended until they are fit again.
The daily claims that there are thousands of such cases happening all over Slovakia, while another benefit for those who have already been dismissed is that they can become entitled to sickness benefit.
The sickness figures for this year are allegedly the worst since 2003, with around 4.3% of the working population unfit for work at present.
