Fit notes (Statement of Fitness for Work or SC2)

The new Fit Note was introduced in 2010 to replace the Sick Note. If you are off-work for 7 days or less your employer should not ask you for medical evidence that you have been ill. I f you are off-work for more than 7 days (including weekends and bank holidays) you may be asked to produce a Fit Note from your GP. Please telephone to enquire.
