ANOTHER PROBLEM SOLVED: Sick leave – “How much information do I need to provide?”

Another Problem Solved!

GSU staff reps routinely answer questions about sick leave, including how much information a member is required to share with their employer about the reason for the sick leave – particularly when the leave is for a very personal issue.

“I have advised members that the amount of information they need to provide is somewhat tied to the amount of time they are off,” said GSU staff rep Dale Markling. “The shorter the absence the less information the company is generally entitled to.”

If your have questions about sick leave or any other issue, don’t hesitate to contact your GSU staff rep.
