If you don’t receive your salary while you’re off sick, you can receive sickness benefit from your employer for the first 30 days of your illness. You must be a member of an A-kasse (unemployment insurance fund) to receive sickness benefit.
To qualify for sickness benefit, you must have been employed for a minimum of 8 weeks and worked 74 hours within those 8 weeks.
If you have been on sickness benefit for 30 days and you’re still sick, your employer must report this to Gentofte Kommune. After that Gentofte Kommune will be responsible for paying your sickness benefit.
So that Gentofte Kommune can pay out your sickness benefit, you must fill in a form at mitsygefravaer.dk. You must do this after you receive a letter about sick pay from Gentofte Kommune in your e-Boks.
Report that you are off sick at mitsygefravaer.dk (in Danish)
