Re: Medical sick note

It's not true that paid sick leave must kick in on the first day. There can be up to three so-called KarenzTage, i.e. it's possible that the first days (up to 3) are unpaid.

This depends on your employment contract.

I guess reason is simple that first 3-days of sick leave is paid (or not) by the company's and after 3-rd day it's insurance that takes over the costs ( depends on salary it be full or %).

That is the reason one should provide "Ärztliche Zeugnisse" as insurance company may request it .

with "Ärztliche Zeugnisse" there is also a fee you pay to the doctor - which is in fact insurance against 3rd party claims ( insurance calling for 2nd opinion ) and proving wrong doing.
