Statement of Fitness to Work (Sickness Certificate)

You do not require a Statement of Fitness for Work certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may ask you to complete a self-certification form available from your employer. 

For illness lasting longer than seven days, you will need to obtain a Statement of Fitness for Work from your doctor.
