Content

Staff members suffering from long-term or chronic disease may apply for an agreement with the municipality in cooperation with their place of work. This agreement will reduce Aalborg University’s expenses related to their sickness absence. It is a precondition that the risk of absence is significantly increased.

Staff members who know they are about to be admitted to hospital or receive necessary (and temporary) medical or rehabilitation treatment as outpatients may also apply for an agreement.

The agreement is described in section 56 of the Danish Sickness Benefit Act and is therefore commonly referred to as a section 56 agreement.

The local municipal authority decides whether an AAU staff member and the University are eligible for a section 56 agreement.

If a section 56 agreement is approved, reimbursement will be paid to the place of work as of the first day of absence due to sickness caused by the disease covered by the agreement.

HOW TO APPLY

Any section 56 agreement application must be based on mutual agreement between the staff member and their staff manager in accordance with the Rector’s Scheme of Delegation.

The staff manager and the staff member must fill in and sign the application form below.

The place of work must register the signed application form of a specific case under the Danish title ‘cpr., Sygedagpengelovens § 56, ”periode”’ in Workzone adding the access right, cf. the Danish case procedure concerning sickness.

The staff member must submit the completed and signed application form to the municipality.
