Rules for extension of employment as a PhD-student after sick leave (with doctor’s certificate)

The vice-chancellor's decision (Reg no: 500-2559-11) regarding extension of the employment of a PhD-student due to sick leave during post graduate studies states:

The PhD student can get additional time if the sick leave is verified with a doctor’s certificate.

Parental leave

If the post graduate student is absent to care for a child and have reported this to the Försäkringskassan, and have received money for this from Försäkringskassan, they will be able to recoup all of these days and thus extend their employment.

The period of sick leave or child care must be well documented in the student's study plan so that it can be appropriately accounted for at the end of the postgraduate studies.

The faculty will pay the cost for the sick leave if the employer have paid ” salary” when the employee was ill.
