Sick pay


Paid sick leave is not an entitlement. However, provided there is a reasonable prospect of eventual recovery and return to duty, civil servants may be allowed sick leave on full pay for not more than 6 months in all during any period of 12 months and thereafter sick leave on half pay, subject to a maximum of 12 months paid sick leave in any period of four years or less.

Note This may be extended if the absence is due to an injury/disease incurred at work, see Regulation E56.
