How to distinguish a new sick-list from a fake? 5 highlights
In this post we will describe how the new sick-list is protected from fakes.
1. A new form is made on special paper.
To begin with, the new sick-list should be on blue paper. At the same time, the cells for filling are not white, but with a yellow tint. In the middle, the blank is a little lighter, on the edges - darker and with a faint shade of purple. Therefore, it is worth paying attention to whether the hospital gives it in some other color. These forms are made on special paper. To the touch, it resembles the one on which banknotes are printed. On the entire surface of the document visible background grid. It is not only in the field "Signature doctor." Its surface is smoother and not “patterned”.
The paper contains three types of protective fibers 4-4.5 mm in length. Visible fibers are blue, and those that are weaker are pink and light green. But both are visible under ultraviolet light. On the clearance in the form you can see the watermarks - the logo of the fund, surrounded by the letters "Social Insurance Fund of the Russian Federation" and two ears.
2. Pay attention to the barcode and microtexts
On each sheet of disability in the upper right corner indicates a twelve-digit barcode. According to it, the information will be read later, when the sick-list will become “electronic”. It can also be noted that under the column “Signature of the doctor” is not just a line, but the microtext “LEAFLESS CAPACITY”. The same descriptors with an increase can be seen in the lower right corner, where the head and the chief accountant should sign.
3. Under the ultraviolet and infrared radiation, the hospital looks different
You can certainly check the sick-list with the help of ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) radiation. For example, if you have cash detectors. So, with ultraviolet blue and yellow shades of the front side of the sick-list turn into green and red. Protective fibers are visible. The text on the form is applied with special paint. With infrared radiation, it becomes completely invisible. Therefore, if the text is still visible under infrared light, then the hospital is precisely forged.
4. The hospital stub will stay with the doctor
The employee must bring you a piece of paper without the lower tear-off part. Since the spine after the cutting line remains in the medical institution and the workers do not give it. If the disability certificate is whole, then it is likely that the bulletin was purchased from fraudsters. Although it is possible, doctors simply forgot to tear off the spine. To clarify the situation, we advise you to contact the institution that is indicated on the hospital.
5. Allowance paid on a fake sick leave must be withheld.
What to do if the sick leave is still fake? Of course, no allowance should be charged and paid. After all, if a fake is found already in the social insurance fund, the payments to the company will not be reimbursed. In addition, it is necessary to warn the employee that for using a knowingly false document he may face liability up to the criminal one.
Assume that the benefit was nevertheless listed on the basis of a fake document. Then the amount of payment will have to be withheld from the employee. But not more than 20 percent of the monthly wage (Art. 138 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation). Only you can do this only with the consent of the employee. If he refuses to return the money, then it remains to recover them only in court. You should also do if the guilty employee has already quit and there is nothing to keep the allowance.
Important thing to remember
1. A new form is made on special paper. To the touch, it resembles the one on which banknotes are printed.
2. You can check the sick-list yourself, if your company has devices for checking cash using infrared radiation or ultraviolet.What to do if the sick leave is still fake?
