Stress leave and ill-health retirement
Myth : I’ve been told that I need to access stress leave but I’m worried if I do this I will be ill-health retired.
Fact : There is no such thing as stress leave – only sick leave.
A medical certificate need only be produced when an absence is greater than three days or there is an identified pattern of absence, a conduct issue or a formal performance process in place.
All public servants can be ill-health retired if there is an extended period of sick leave, with little or no chance of recovery. This applies to all illnesses.
