Monitoring of sick absence


Accounting Officers should ensure that Line Managers keep an accurate record of all periods of sick absence and monitor all such absences carefully. All sick absences, whether self certificated or medically certificated, will count for the purposes of determining the sick absence limits set out in Regulations E14 - E16 and E23 to E26.

Further information is available in the booklet Management of Sickness Absence Policy and Guidance.
