For all days or part-days of absence up to seven consecutive calendar days, employees are required, on return to work, to complete and return to the employing office a JTL Absence Statement for counter-signature by the Manager. Copies of the Statement will be forwarded to the employee by the Human Resources Department.

Absences longer than seven days (five working days) must be covered by a Statement signed by a Medical Practitioner. Such statements must be sent, at intervals determined by the Practitioner, directly to their line manager or the Human Resources Department. All forms, once counter-signed, shall be sent to the Human Resources Department for further action.

For absences greater than seven days, a final statement from the Medical Practitioner of fitness to resume duties may be required on return to work.
