Designed for

The Sick Leave Management Report enables schools to view sick leave records for both teaching and non-teaching staff, including absences where no medical certificate has been provided.


How can I use this report?

The Sick Leave Management Report allows DELs and Principals to see the number of staff sick days taken in a year, including sick leave without an accompanying medical certificate. This allows the user to easily identify staff sick leave absence patterns that are of concern, so they can follow the appropriate sick leave management processes to work with and support relevant staff.

What should I look for?

This report helps identify any staff with a sick leave record that may be of concern, in particular, those who have exceeded the threshold for ‘sick leave with no medical certificate’.
