Request A Fit Note

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.

Fit (Sick) Note

You do not need a sick note for the first 7 days of an illness - you can still self-certify your illness.

For isolating due to COVID-19 you can get an isolation note for up to 14 days here: 111.nhs.uk/isolation-note/

If you have been ill for 7 days or less you don’t need to see a Doctor. You can complete a Self Certification form yourself. However some employers insist on a Doctor’s note regardless. A Doctors note under these circumstances may involve a charge. Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer doesn’t have its own form your can complete the Employee's Statement of Sickness (SC2) form online

When you’ve filled in the form give it to your employer, it will help them decide if you can get SSP. Keep a copy for your own information.

E.g. could you work from home, do fewer hours, or do different tasks at work?
