Annual leave and sickness absence


Where an employee is on a period of annual leave and becomes unfit for duty during the leave, the period of sickness will be counted towards the employee's sickness record, only if certified by a Medical Practitioner and only if the period of incapacity seriously interrupts the period of leave (ie 4 or more days of illness). The equivalent annual leave days compared to the period of certified sickness will be re-credited to the employee's annual leave entitlement.
