What to do When an Employee Calls in Sick

VU VUMC

If your employee is out more than 3 consecutive days, or plans to be out that long, notify the employee that the condition might qualify for FMLA. The FMLA request and approval process includes medical certification in which the treating provider provides appropriate documentation to HR of the individual’s severity of illness.

Other than FMLA documentation, please do not request doctor’s notes for sick time use. A doctor’s note is not required for an employee to use sick time and will not change whether the absence counts as an occurrence.

The Occupational Health Clinic (OHC) does not provide work excuses for sick time. Employees may or may not need to seek healthcare when they are sick.

See HR policies for FMLA, Medical Center PTO, University PTO, and Grandfathered Sick Time.
