Follow-up of long-term sick leave

After 8 weeks, the follow-up of the sick leave will consist of regular contact between you and your Head/Manager. The purpose will still be to help you return to work as quickly as possible. Dialogue meeting 2 will be the next point of contact and convened by NAV after you have been on sick leave for 6 months.

Extended medical certificate after 8 weeks

If you are not involved in work-related activity within eight weeks, you need an extended medical certificate documenting that there are compelling medical reasons that prevent you from participating in a work-related activity. Your doctor will initiate the extension of your medical certificate.
