Is the individual employer responsible for the medical follow-up of his/her employee?

Verified 31 March 2022 - Legal and Administrative Information Directorate (Prime Minister)

Yes, as an individual employer, you must take care of your employee's medical follow-up. The following medical visits are required:

The rules that apply are same as for any employee.

If your employee has more than one employer, each employer must ensure that the employee receives mandatory medical attention. The individual employer could be held liable if this is not the case.

You must join an occupational health and prevention service.

This service is empowered to provide medical supervision to the employees of the individual employer.

To obtain the contact details of the competent prevention and health service, you can contact the departmental Directorate for Employment, Labour and Solidarity (DDETS: titleContent or DDETSPP: titleContent).
