Sickness Absence

You do not require any form of certification during the FIRST FOUR DAYS off work.

If you are off for UP TO SEVEN DAYS because you are not well enough to attend work, then you should fill in a self-certificate.

You can download a self-certificate form by clicking the following link:

SSP SC2 Employee’s Statement of Sickness

Anything OVER SEVEN DAYS means you will need a fit note (doctor’s certificate).
