2. Get a medical certificate

Ask the doctor or approved medical practitioner to fill out a medical certificate form to confirm:

  • the date the doctor saw you,
  • that you are too sick to work, and
  • when the doctor thinks you will be ready to return to work.

Keep your medical certificate in a safe place until you need it.
