Medical certificate required after 5 days not 1
PPTA Te Wehengarua advice to members regarding the amendment to the Holidays Act requiring proof of injury or illness
PPTA Te Wehengarua collective agreements require proof of sickness after 5 days
A recent amendment to the Holidays Act that allows employers to ask for a medical certificate after one day's absence does not apply to PPTA members covered by our collective agreements (STCA, ASTCA, SPCA, ASPCA and the Adult and Community Education Staff CA).
The requirement to produce medical certificates for sick leave in excess of 5 days as required by those collective agreements continues.
