An employer may ask an employee for proof of sickness or injury.Usually proof is a medical certificate from a doctor saying that the employee is sick or injured (or their spouse, partner or dependant) and isn't able to work.
If an employee has extra sick leave benefits in their employment agreement, these might have specific proof requirements, eg an agreement of an extra five days’ sick leave per year and for these five extra days the employee will provide proof that they are sick at their own cost.

For the first SEVEN days of illness or injury (including Sundays), you do not need to provide your employer with a doctor's medical certificate (sick note).It would be acceptable to accept a certificate for a backdated period if issued directly after the holiday period.Agents are to review the circumstances of each claim and ask for necessary information to accept or reject the backdated certificate.
If the certificate is backdated the reasons should be stated on the certificate.
