Abstract [en]

Employees who stay home from work because of mental illness are an increasing number in Sweden. One of the reasons may be the increasing demands on the employees. The purpose of this essay is to investigate the legal context about the employers responsibility with regard to rehabilitation, and also to investigate what happens, mentally and economically, with the employee on a sick leave. The responsibility is wide and the consequences are many. To fulfill the purpose the legal method have been used.   If an employee becomes ill, the employer is responsible to start a rehabilitation. If  the employee is unable to go back to the same work tasks as before, the employer must investigate whether the employee can be of any other use to the employer or not. To let an employee go due to his/her mental illness should only be done as a last resort.   The sick leave may have negative influences for the employee, one example is that the mental illness can be even worse. A sick leave can also involve an economic insecurity, therefore many employees work even if they are ill.
