CNS: for sick employees, adjustments are to be expected

The Caisse nationale de santé (CNS) is sending out, in the week of 18 November, the compensation certificates showing the indemnities paid to employees who were ill during the period from 1 April to 30 June 2020.  Adjustments may be necessary.

Were you ill during the first confinement and do you notice a discrepancy on your pay slip? Pay attention to the contents of your mailbox this week. The Caisse nationale de santé (CNS) is sending, for information purposes, to employers and employees concerned the certificates of compensation paid between 1 April and 30 June 2020.

During this period, the mechanism for ongoing payment of wages by the employer in the event of sickness/accident has been replaced by direct payment by the CNS.

Given that the CNS’s financial compensation is calculated differently from the employer’s ongoing payment of wages, differences in wages may arise. In this case, adjustments may be necessary.

If an employee notices a difference between the usual remuneration and the compensation, he or she is requested to contact his or her employer for adjustment.
