Sick leave happened on rest day will be treated as sick leave. Rest day will not apply anymore as mentioned in section 59(1) of the Employment Act.

If your company has the practice of footing medical claims then you give. Otherwise, it is up to the company to give or not. The Employment Act has not provision for payment of medical claims.
