E15 – Civil servant has 12 months sick pay in 4-year period
When a civil servant has had a total of 12 months paid sick leave in any period of 4 years or less, no further sick pay should be allowed (unless the absence is due to an injury/disease incurred at work) except with the consent of the Public Services Commission.
When full pay or half pay has ceased, it should not be restored during the same sick absence.
E16 – Exclusion for increment or pension
Sick leave in excess of 12 months during any period of 4 years or less does not reckon for increment or pension.
E17 – Exhaustion of full pay and half pay sick leave
When a civil servant has exhausted sick leave on full and half pay under Regulation E14 - Sick Pay, the Public Services Commission may allow pay during further sick leave at a rate not exceeding the amount of pension, if any, for which he would have qualified if he had been retired on health grounds at the end of 12 months sick leave, or at half pay if that is less.
E18 – Calculating sick absence
Periods of sick absence should be calculated in accordance with Regulations E39 - E40.
