What are the hours of leave authorization for the employee on sick leave?

Verified 22 March 2023 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)

Your work stoppage shows the hours of your leave.

2 situations are possible:

  • The doctor may stop you from going out during your sick leave
  • The doctor may allow you to go out during your sick leave. If the work stoppage so provides, you must be present at home (unless you need medical attention or examinations) from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., including Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
    However, by way of derogation, the doctor may authorize free exits. In this case, the doctor must detail, in the work stoppage, the medical conditions which specify the exits from your home.


the doctor also indicates on the work stoppage if you can to carry out certain activities outside your home.
