Sick leave form        

Please read the Sick Leave Scheme for further information.

When an employee is absent because of sickness, he/she must notify by telephone the Dean/Head of Department/Manager before or within one hour after 09h00 am on the first day of absence.

Sick leave must be recorded by the Dean/HOD/Manager on a sick leave form and forwarded to HR straightaway. Please note that a delay in doing so will affect an employee’s salary.

A medical certificate must be sent to the Dean/HOD/Manager on or before the third day of absence. The Dean/HOD/Manager must forward all medical certificates to the Human Resources Division attached to the sick leave form. If the illness persists additional medical certificates must be submitted on a regular and timely basis. 

Special leave with pay should only apply in lieu of sick leave for COVID-19 when an employee is advised to self-isolate and is displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or had a positive test. Medical or HSE advice should be followed. For more information, please go to the Government Publications section of the COVID-19 SharePoint Hub for staff or Contact HR.

A guide to tax relief available for home or e-working is available in the Remote Working section of the COVID-19 SharePoint site. If you require a letter from your employer confirming that you are e-working, the template for this is available on the HR website here.
