This document is a simple letter that an employee can use to notify their employer that they have a suspected or confirmed case of coronavirus, or COVID-19.
During the global pandemic, many employees are facing situations where they have either been exposed to someone with the virus or they may have even tested positive for the virus. The Department of Health of the Philippines advises that if a person who is not showing any symptoms of COVID-19 but has recently traveled to a country with a confirmed case of COVID-19 or has been in close contact with a person who traveled to a country with a confirmed case of COVID-19 or is showing mild symptoms, then they must go on a 14-day home quarantine.
This letter notifies the employer that the employee may have been affected by coronavirus, and therefore requires time off from physically going into work.
How to use this document
This document should be filled out by the employee. Many employers are not requiring a medical certificate in COVID-19 matters, in order to relieve some pressure from medical providers, and to limit the risk of transmission at medical centers. However, the employee may need to check the employer's policies in relation to this.
Since COVID-19 is contagious, if the person sending this letter has a suspected or confirmed case of it, they should do all that they can to avoid contact with any other person. Therefore, they should avoid having a face to face meeting with their employer. However, other means of communication, such as phone or email, might be appropriate.
When this document is complete, it should be signed, either electronically or with ink, and sent to the employer. The employee should keep a copy.
The Labor Code of the Philippines is the law that primarily governs employment in the Philippines. However, other laws and regulations have been passed to govern specific types of public and private employments.
