This policy has been updated to comply with emergency legislation relating to the Coronavirus, including the Statutory Sick Pay (Medical Evidence) Regulations 2021. Now employees need only provide a doctor's fit note if sick for 28 days, previously it was 7 days. These are temporary measures to deal with the Omicron variant.

Employees can now claim statutory sick pay from day one if they are ill with the Coronavirus or self-isolating if there is a risk that they could be infected.
