If you are ill

Notification of illness

As an employee at the department, you must notify your workplace that you are ill at the start of the working day on the first day of illness in accordance with the local guidelines for the specific workplace (see special guidelines below). 

If you are to undergo surgery or prolonged treatment, you must inform your workplace of the dates of your absence as soon as you become aware of them. This is to facilitate the planning of the work and any necessary re-assignment of tasks.
