In order to receive a pending sick note, you must meet the medical conditions for sick leave, and it must be possible for you to be active based on a medical assessment.

Pending sick note is applicable during the employer liability  period, i.e., the first 16 days.

If facilitation is not possible and you are completely absent from work, your doctor must replace the pending sick note with an ordinary sick note if your employer demands it.

The new ordinary sick note applies from the day the pending sick note was written. Pending sick note is a separate tick off box in the doctor's form.
