After one month of service, Workers are entitled to paid sick leave. The employer must pay full-salary for the first nine days of illness or injury. This is referred to as the "waiting period." Employers may request a medical certificate, but it is not required. After the waiting period, the payments are taken over by the Finnish social system (Kela).
