Get a sick leave certificate (L4) online during a teleconsultation

An electronic sick leave certificate (also known as L4 or e-ZLA) can be issued by any specialist doctor. However, the doctor must verify whether there is justification for issuing the document, so obtaining an e-Sick Leave requires a consultation about your health.

Thanks to haloDoctor, the entire process from finding a doctor with available slots, scheduling an e-Visit, participating in the online consultation, and issuing an e-Sick Leave by a specialist takes only 15 minutes and does not require leaving your home.

However, remember that it is the doctor who always decides whether issuing an e-Sick Leave is necessary! Each case is considered individually. After conducting an interview with the patient and reviewing the results of tests and/or medical history, the doctor will decide on the justification for issuing the sick leave certificate (eZLA).

What information is needed to get e-Sick Leave?

During the online consultation, the doctor only needs the patient's PESEL number. The rest of the data necessary for issuing the e-Sick Leave will be retrieved from the e-ZLA system. So, you don't have to worry before the visit that the doctor will ask you for a lot of data. It's worth having your ID card on hand if you don't know your PESEL number by heart.

Are there any differences between e-Sick Leave obtained in a stationary office and online consultation?

The sick leave certificate received during a stationary visit does not differ from the one obtained during an e-Consultation. Both authorize an employee to be absent from work to the same extent.

Does the employer see the reason for sick leave?

According to Article 22 of the Labor Code, the employer cannot demand information from the employee about their health. An exception is only when this information is necessary for the employee to exercise specific labor law rights. It follows that the employee is not obliged to inform the employer about the reasons for their illness.

However, in the case of illness, the employee is obliged to inform the employer immediately that they will not be at work. Additionally, they should also inform you about the expected duration of the illness, and not later than the second day of absence from work.

Can I get both e-Sick Leave and e-Prescription during online consultations?

Yes, during online consultations – if justified – the patient can receive both e-Sick Leave and an e-Prescription for the appropriate medications. The fee is only for the online visit itself. On the haloDoctor platform, the patient does not pay an additional fee for issuing an e-Prescription or e-Sick Leave online.
