When do I need a sicknote?

    You can have until next Tuesday without a certificate. If you don't go to work next Wednesday, you need a certificate.

    I would be tempted to see your doctor now, though there is technically no need.
     
  2. If I was ill I would see the GP as soon as and then sort out the paperwork.
     
  3. See your doctor straight away. Legally you can self certificate for a week but many LAs are now introducing policies of asking for a doctors line after 3 days. If there is a dispute, all the more reason.

    Try posting on workplace dilemmas. It's very supportive over there too. I'm sorry you are ill. Xox

    Sorry you're not feeling so well surf kitty. Many schools have an insurance scheme that kicks in after 3 days, and the insurance company will need a sick note. They won't accept self certifying.
