Occupational disease

If there is a well-founded suspicion that an employee has contracted an occupational disease, the employer shall provide the employee with a certificate of insurance for the medical health centre and notify the insurance company by filling out an accident / occupational disease notification form.

An occupational disease is compensated either by the insurance policy that the employee was under during the time of the occupational disease occurred or by the employee’s previous insurance policy in the previous job where the occupational disease possibly was caused.

All diseases caused by work are however not compensated under the Workers’ Compensation Act.
