Re: sign-off from work when being abroad?

Is a foreign medical certificate (provided it is in one of the Swiss official languages) equally accepted during a period termination of employment by the employer (where it effectively extends the notice period) or is this irrelevant? Just thinking in these uncertain times, one can be sick whilst stuck in another country/unable to travel back to Switzerland.

Re: sign-off from work when being abroad?

In general, a foreign medical certificate is accepted if issued by a medical doctor whose qualification is similar to that required for a doctor in Switzerland. I mention that because, in some countries, a sick-note can validly be issued by a some other kinds of medical professionals, such as a physiotherapist, as psychologist or a nursing practitioner. Certificates of that nature have no validity in Switzerland.
