Medical Leave Form

Medical Leave Form

A Medical Leave Form is a document used by employees to request time off from work due to health-related issues.

Medical Leave Form

A medical practitioner may decline to issue a certificate. This may occur if s/he does not consider that absence from work is necessary given the nature of the illness, or if a certificate is requested retrospectively and the practitioner is not confident about the facts of the matter.

Medical practitioners have important legal and professional responsibilities when issuing medical certificates. Specifically they must:

  •  Be honest and not misleading when issuing medical certificates
  • Only sign medical certificates they believe, or reasonably believe, to be accurate.

This means the medical certificate must be based on facts known to the doctor  – including the practitioner’s own observations as well as information provided by the patient. Any medical statements in the certificate must have a factual basis.
