Re: sign-off from work when being abroad?

Yes, if an employee is away because of illness, then they must inform the employer as soon as they know of the illness.

Some work contracts state some number of days of being off sick, for which no doctor's certificate is necessary. In that case, the salary is simply paid. Commonly this is 3 days, but some contracts need a doctor's certificate from day 1.

After that short period, yes, you need a formal doctor's certificate, as you say, to enable the employer to prove to their insurance that your salary must be covered. This, however, this does not need to be done by you, as it is a contract between your employer and their insurer (as opposed to your medical insurance).

Hope you're not very ill, and soon well, and soon home.
