Apparently we shouldn’t worry too much about checking the doctor during the hours of the tax visits; data in hand, in fact, only in 2.47% of cases a control visit is actually requested. Money.it crossed the data on medical certificates sent in the first quarter of 2022 with those referring to tax visits carried out in the same period, and the result leaves no room for interpretation: out of a total of 11,937,194 certificates sent, and 6,093,252 people involved, checkups were only 295,555. In particular, checkups are more in the public sector, where the probability of passing the doctor is 6.47%, compared to 1.26% in the private sector. Therefore, just over 2 workers out of 100, among those on sick leave, were subject to a tax visit in the first months of the year and of these only 10.71% were sanctioned because they were unavailable. For 1.85% of cases, however, the period of illness was reduced following the control; for the most part, therefore, the fiscal visits led to a confirmation of the prognosis, as happened in 72.80% of cases. And to think that tax visits are usually arranged for those events most likely to reduce the prognosis, at least according to the calculations made by the “brain” at the INPS. The probability of receiving the tax visit is therefore very low; not for this, however, we must not worry and transgress the rules, given that for those who are not available during the hours of the tax visits, very severe penalties are envisaged, ranging from non-payment of sickness allowance to dismissal for just cause.
