That's new: Electronic sick notes eAU

This is true progress since, up to now, employees have had to send in their sick note to their employer’s HR department by regular mail after the doctor’s visit. There, the data had to be entered manually into SAP – a time-consuming and, above all, error-prone procedure that unnecessarily consumed considerable resources.

From January 1, 2023, the sick note will be transmitted entirely digitally. With valantic’s SAP add-on, HCM Inside eAU, employees and employers have a quick, user-friendly, secure and convenient way to fulfill their legal obligations.

Companies save time, money and human resources by using HCM Inside eAU as a SAP add-on; and employees can fulfill their duty to inform their employer promptly, directly after the doctor’s visit, using any commercially available smartphone or notebook.
