This form is to record sickness absence information and the employee must complete it on the first day of their return to work.  Employees must complete a self-certificate for all periods of sickness absence of half a day or more.  If you are sick for more than seven consecutive calendar days, you will need a doctor’s certificate (called a statement of fitness for work).

Once completed, we will store this form on your personnel file and will keep it for a period of three years.
