Statement of Fitness for Work

onlinehealthcareYou do not require a statement of fitness for work for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or via HMRC Website.

If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay). Please note that if you are asked by your employer/ University etc to provide a certificate other than a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ this will  incur a fee (please check at reception for details).

It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.

Rules of the fit note

You should get a fit note from the doctor who is treating you. This will usually be your GP, but if you are getting treatment in hospital you should ask for one from your hospital doctor (if you don’t already have one). Fit notes can either be handwritten or printed, but must be signed by a doctor. Duplicate fit notes can only be issued if the original has been lost.

For further information please see Fit for work Scotland

                                                                                                                                                               

You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
