Sick Note

Please note that you are not required by law to provide a Fit to Work Note unless you have been off work for more than 7 days. If your employer wants one before this, then you will have to pay for a private sick note and the charge for this is £15.

For sickness of 7 days or less your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
