    Report sick to your temporary employment agency. Do so no later than on the second day of sickness. Two possible situations exist:

    1. Your contract contains a temporary employment agency clause ("uitzendbeding"). In this case, your employment ends. Your temporary employment agency will report you sick to UWV. UWV will assess whether you qualify for a sickness benefit.
    2. Your contract does not contain a temporary employment agency clause ("uitzendbeding"). In this case, the temporary employment agency will continue paying wages during your period of sickness.

    Report sick to your employer. Do so no later than on the second day of sickness. If you become sick during the agreed on-call period, your employer will continue paying wages until the end of this period.
