Types of TD processes depending on the estimated duration
- Process with a very short estimated duration: less than five calendar days.
- Process with a short estimated duration: from 5 to 30 calendar days.
- Process with a medium estimated duration: from 31 to 60 calendar days.
Process with a long estimated duration: 61 or more calendar days.
The medical personnel who issue the sick leave and confirmation reports must determine, at the time of issue, the estimated duration of the process.
The medical personnel may alter the estimated duration at a later time, due to changes or updates in the worker's diagnosis or the evolution of their health problem. For this purpose, as set out in article 2.4 of Royal Decree 625/2014, of 18 July, they will issue a confirmation report stating the new estimated duration, and if applicable, framing the process as a different type to those stated in the previous section.
