Please refer to the employment agreement, which details sick leave entitlements.
Application for Sick Leave must be made on the appropriate application form and approved by management. All sick leave is recorded by Payroll.
If employees are absent for any more than two consecutive working days, they are required to produce a medical certificate covering the period of the absence. Medical certificates and applications for sick leave should be forwarded to the Manager for processing in the current pay period. Failure to submit a medical certificate may result in the absence being unpaid.
Should sick leave become regular or excessive, the company may request a medical certificate be produced for single day absences.
When sick leave entitlements are exhausted, sick leave may be taken either:
- without pay, or
- in lieu of annual leave
Application for Unpaid Leave must be made on the appropriate application form, stating the reason and submitted to management for approval or otherwise. Staff requiring leave beyond entitlements cannot be guaranteed approval.
