The Supreme Court, sitting as the High Court of Justice (HCJ), has issued its decision regarding the validity of a general medical certificate issued to an
employee who is in isolation under a National Health Order.

The HCJ has ruled that “statistical patients” who are in preventative isolation and are asymptomatic, do not suffer from an illness which prevents them from working, but rather are forcibly being prevented from performing their work by a government isolation order and not by illness, and therefore, the general medical certificate given in their regard does not amount to a “medical certificate” as defined in the Sickness Benefit Regulations and does not
entitle employees to sickness benefit under the Sickness Benefit Law, and is therefore invalidated.

Advocate Tamar Golan goes into the details of the decision and its implications.
