I tested positive for Covid on 3rd. My 10 days isolation was up this Tuesday but I didn’t feel strong enough to return to work for the rest of this week. Today will be my last sick day and I will return to work on Monday.
My line manager messaged me originally to say I would only need a sick certificate from the end of my isolation period to my return date if it was more than 7 days.
No problem, I thought, as after isolation I will have only been off for 3 working days. So no certificate required.
She has since messaged to say her manager is insisting on a Drs certificate as I have been off for two weeks.
So I rang Drs who said I didn’t need one as it was government advice to self isolate for 10 days, so the period of sickness after this doesn’t warrant one.
Work have again hassled me this morning asking for a certificate and saying they will have to put me on days off for these last 3 days (meaning I will owe them hours) rather than sick days if I don’t produce a certificate!
Does anyone who is right please?!
