Mandatory health checks(OVP) aims at protecting the health of the worker. The first-time mandatory health check must be completed by any person prior to the commencement of the employment legal relationship, in accordance with all identified risk factors to which the employee will be exposed. The current OVP is carried out by a doctor of occupational diseases for workers who have special conditions at work and whose health may be affected by harmful factors in the working environment.
Periodic OVP employees shall be performed periodically. This shall be determined by the employer in carrying out the occupational environmental risk assessment. Read more about OVPLabour Protection LawandCabinet Regulation No. 219 of 10 March 2009.Procedures for the Performance of a Mandatory Health Inspectorate.
The costs related to THE employed OVP shall be borne by the employer. If THE OVP has been carried out before the commencement of a legal or civil service relationship, the costs shall be borne by the person concerned, by mutual agreement, by his or her own resources or by the employer.
There are other types OF OVP with a view to protecting public health for persons working in works related to potential risks to the health of others. Since 31.07.2018., the requirement regarding the provision of a person's medical book to employees has been replaced by an opinion issued by a family doctor regarding the conformity of a person to perform work duties (form No 027/u). In future, THE OVP should be carried out by staff working or in training practice in works in which the employee is in regular close contact or episodically close contact with the child at the indoor premises and carrying out work duties at the child education institution, at the place of providing the child supervision service, at the child camp, in a social care and rehabilitation institution or in a medical facility. OVP should also be carried out by food workers employed in one of the stages of the food chain (including drinking water) in which there is direct contact with bulk food. Repeat annual OVP should only be performed by persons employed at work, in direct contact with children, with a view to screening for their TB.
The employer may not employ an employee who has been infected with an infectious disease, as that worker may pose a risk to the health of other people. For more detailed information on the employer's and worker's responsibilities, the frequency, extent of periodic checks, and the groups of employees who are required to perform these checks, see.Cabinet Regulation No. 447 of 24 July 2018.
If the compulsory health inspection (OVP) shows that the worker needs special visual correction tools (glasses, contact lenses), the company must have procedures for paying them, in accordance with "Job protection requirements when working on the display'12 and 14. On the need for visual adjustment tools, the doctor will mark ON THE OVP card.
Regulatory enactments prescribe that the employer shall determine the procedures for the purchase of special medically optical visual adjustment products (glasses, contact lenses) in the agenda regulations or collective agreement.
Depending on the specific nature of the work, employees can be exposed to an increased risk of infections on a daily basis. In such cases, attention should be paid to the need for vaccination and the requirements. The employer shall be obliged to:
Arodinfection is an infectious disease with which a person may become infected if, in the performance of his or her duties, he or she comes into contact with infectious disease agents or carriers. For the prevention of infection, workers shall be required to vaccinate against the following infectious diseases:
If the employer has not provided the employee with the possibility of receiving vaccination, the employee has the right to refuse to perform such work duties which expose him or her to the risk of infection with the referred to infectious diseases.
If you belong to a group of persons to be vaccinated, (Cabinet Regulation No. 330Paragraphs 33 to 37) You are obliged to present an grafting passport at the request of the employer, the Health Inspectorate and officials of the State Labour Inspectorate, as well as epidemiologists of the Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.
If you are ill and unable to perform your duties, go to your doctor to design a sick-leave sheet (sick-leave).
The incapacity sheet shall be issued:
The opening, extension and closure of the e-workforce sheet shall be carried out by the patient's family doctor or treating physician. Sick leaves shall be opened, extended and closed only electronically.
After closing the e-incapacity sheet, the patient should no longer submit it to the employer (or all employers, if any) in paper form. If, at the time of your illness, the employer wishes to verify the fact that the e-Disability Sheet is opened, at the request of the patient, the doctor or patient may authorize the eHealth Portal itself and print or send this information to the employer's e-mail.
Once you are recovered and ready to return to work, the doctor who has opened the e-disability page will also close it - information about it will be sent automatically to your employer. Your employer will see this information in his or her SRS EDS profile on the day following the closure of the e-incapacity page.
Important! Only one e-disability page can be opened in the eHealth system! Thus, in order for the doctor to open a new e-incapacity sheet, the previous one must be closed!
Information on your e-disability pages, their status, incapacity periods, registration numbers, etc. is available on the Latvija.lv e-service “Disability pages received”. You can also view your e-incapacity pages by authorising eveseliba.gov.lv under the heading “Disability leaves”.
More about e-disability pages have been read in the mana.latvija.lv life of the Disease Action and the eHealth Portal.
Sickness and sickness allowance
If the duration of the disease is up to 10 days, you will be given a sick-leave sheet A. This means that the sickness money will be paid by your employer. The sickness allowance shall be paid for the days (hours) on which the worker would have had to work, not less than 75% for days 2 and 3 and not less than 80% for the day of sickness 4.
The e-incapacity sheet A must be paid to the employer by the date of the next payout.
For a sickness period exceeding 10 days, you will be granted sick leave B for which you can claim sickness benefits from the VSAA:
The sickness allowance (for sick sheet A) and the sickness allowance (for incapacity sheet B) shall be calculated from the gross salary. So pay attention to whether your employer pays social insurance contributions for you. To check this, use the e-service “Information about social security contributions and periods of insurance” located in the Latvija.lv portal.
Video “Information on Social Security contributions and periods of insurance”
In order to verify your disease-related data in the national registers, you can use the Electronic Declaration System (EDS) of the State Revenue Service (SRS) and under the “Reports” section, you can see information including “Employee Disability Sheet Data” and “National Social Insurance Charges Calculated by Employers”, etc. Information on social contributions is important because it depends not only on sickness benefits, but also on the amount of other benefits and pensions.

If the employee is suffering continuously and does not work for more than six months, the employer may take a decision to terminate the employment legal relationship. If a person has not been sick for a while during a half-year period, then all periods of sickness shall be summed up. In general, such diseasement shall not exceed one year over a period of three years.
The only exception, during sickness, must not include maternity leave, as well as periods of incapacity for work caused by occupational accident or occupational disease. Upon termination of the employment relationship on the basis of long-term incapacity, the employer shall be obliged to pay the severance allowance to the employee.
If the worker has been suffering continuously for more than 6 months, the sickness allowance shall be paid for a period of not more than 26 weeks in the event of breaks, not exceeding 52 weeks over a period of three years. On the basis of the opinion of the Commission for Health and Health Examiner Doctors (DEATH), the cost of sickness benefit may be extended, but not more than 52 weeks from the first day of incapacity for work. In such cases, the treating physician shall send the patient to THE DEATH, which shall decide on the extension of the incapacity or the identification of the disability.
Using the e-service “Application FOR Disability Examination” on the Latvija.lv portal, you can submit an application TO THE VDEATH regarding the performance of the disability expert-examination. For the application to be valid, it must be completed in Latvian and must be accompanied by all necessary documents in a scanned manner.

The purchase and assignment of health insurance policies at each workplace may vary as it is the voluntary choice of the employer. Therefore, the policy allocation arrangements are usually determined in the institution's internal documentation – to which and in which cases the policy is granted, the amount paid by the employer or the co-payment of the employee is provided for.
Consultations on both labour law and labour protection issues are provided by the National Labour Inspection (NSA), e-services developed by the NSA are available to employers and workers.
If your employer violates the worker's employment rights or job protection requirements at your workplace, or if you have observed violations elsewhere, using the e-service “Application for the Labour Inspectorate and Receive an Answer of the Labour Inspectorate” (instruction for the use of the E-service), you may notify it electronically to the NSA. It is important to remember that, in the event of any need or problem, the employer or the trusted person in the workplace should be addressed first. Only if the employer does not respond to the request, refuses to address the situation, or if there are other reasons to resolve the problem, contact the appropriate authority for assistance. An opinion from the NSA on the fact of the health and safety hazards of an employee at work may be obtained electronically.
The complaint must be answered by the employer not later than seven days after receipt of the complaint. If you then want to turn to the NSA, save a copy of your complaint or submission, or provide other evidence for correspondence with your employer.
If there are issues regarding the procedures for the issuance of the sick leave, THE results of THE OVP or the decision regarding the determination of the occupational disease may be referred to the Health Inspectorate using the e-service “Application for the Health Inspectorate”. You can also report any irregularities you are observing at the workplace or elsewhere with your application.
