subfolder. They can also be used as a standalone document to provide
employers with general information on dealing with employee sickness and
absence. Employers should be aware that employee sick leave records are
considered to be sensitive personal information and should be stored and
processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018.
The Guidance Notes cover areas such as: sickness procedure; short-term
sickness; long-term sickness; statutory sick pay; company sick pay; and
other non-sickness related absences.
