• 5 working days sick leave in each ensuing period of twelve months for use when
the Employee, the Employee’s spouse, or a person who depends on the Employee

or sister, a parent or grandparent, or a spouse’s parent;
• 1 days bereavement leave on the death of any other person that the Employer
accepts as being a bereavement for the Employee. In making this decision the

responsibilities of the Employee in relation to the death and any other relevant
factors.

such 12 month period.
7.3.
If requested the Employee agrees to provide a medical certificate or other proof of
sickness or injury:
• after three calendar days leave for paid leave (unless the Employer has reasonable
grounds for suspecting that there is no sickness or injury in which case the
Employer may require the certificate or proof before then but at the Employer’s
cost);
• at any time for any additional sick leave granted by the Employer whether paid or
unpaid.
7.4.
The Employee will notify the Employer as soon as practicable after the Employee
becomes aware that the Employee will not be able to attend work for any reason
including sickness or bereavement.
7.5.
Where the Employee is entitled to paid sick leave and bereavement leave it will be
paid at an amount that is equivalent to the Employee’s relevant daily pay. Relevant
daily pay is the amount of pay the Employee would have received on the day
concerned calculated in accordance with the Holidays Act 2003. Payment will be
made provided:
• Required notification of the Employee’s intention to take such leave is given;
and
• in the case of sick leave a medical certificate or other proof of sickness or
injury has been provided by the Employee to the Employer if required and
requested, and
• the Employee would in fact have worked on that day but for the sickness or
bereavement.
7.6.
Where the Employer has reasonable grounds to believe that sickness or injury
compromises an Employee’s ability to perform their job, the Employer may require
the employee to undergo medical examinations with a view to either changing the
Employee’s duties or terminating this agreement. The examinations shall be
conducted by suitably qualified practitioners or specialists at the Employer’s expense.
7.7.
The Employer may at the Employer’s discretion grant additional sick or bereavement
leave with or without pay.
7.8.
The provisions in this agreement for sick leave and bereavement leave include any
statutory entitlement and the parties agree that in the event of the statutory
entitlements changing then those entitlements shall apply and not the entitlements set
out in this agreement.
