Temporary Changes to Providing a Fit Note

Posted on December 20th, 2021

There has been a temporary change to allow GP surgeries more capacity to focus on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) booster programme.

Now employers can only ask employees for proof of sickness (a fit note) after 28 days of sickness (including working days) meaning you do not need to provide a fit note until after 28 days of absence.

This change took effect on December 17th but applies to absences beginning on or after December 10th, up to and including absences which begin on or before January 26th, 2022.

The self-certification period will revert back to seven days for absences beginning on or after January 27th, 2022.

If you are concerned about your health condition, please speak to your GP.
