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 by the insurance institution with which the employee had a valid accident insurance policy at the time when the occupational disease occurred, or the one with which the employee had a valid accident insurance policy in the last job where the occupational disease was possibly caused.

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