A template for written terms of employment for employees.
These templates include the line 'For absences of 7 days or more because of sickness or injury, you must get a [doctor's certificate or fit note]'. If someone's sickness absence started between 10 December 2021 and 26 January 2022, they do not need a fit note unless they are off work for more than 28 days. This was a temporary change to the usual 7 day rule. Find out about the rules on fit notes.
