Temporary Change to Self-Certification rules from 10 December 2021 till 26th January 2022

You now only need to give your employer proof of illness with a Fit Note if you have been absent for more than 28 days. This applies for all reasons of sickness absence (not just COVID-19). If you submit a request early, we will not action this until the 28 days has lapsed.

If you started any sick leave before 10 December 2021, you must still give proof that you’ve been ill for more than 7 days.
