Considerations for Certificates of Illness and Modified Duties/Accommodations

  • The Employee Health Resource Centre [EHRC] will advise the employee in writing of the requirements when a Certificate of Illness is not completed appropriately. When the appropriate Certificate is received it will be processed as above.
  • Where an employee fails or refuses to provide an adequate Certificate of Illness in a timely manner according to the process the EHRC will determine the reason for not submitting the certificate of Illness and will advise the ECC to continue or stop salary payment as appropriate.
  • Requests for modified duties and accommodative employment may require greater detail about medical restrictions.
