Recording COVID-19 absence update

Information for line managers on recording coronavirus absence…

Last month, we told you about the process you have to follow if a member of your team is off sick due to COVID-19.

In addition to this, and following some queries, the HR team would like to clarify the details on self-certification (or Fit Notes):

  • Staff do not need to provide a Fit Note for the first 14 days’ COVID related sickness absence
  • If a member of your team is off work for longer than 14 days, due to COVID related absence, they will need to provide a Fit Note.

If you have any further questions, contact the HR Advisory team.
