Our expert says:
RE: SICK LEAVE - MON/FRI/PUBLIC HOLIDAYS
The company can only take sick leave without a doctors note as annual leave if it is done by agreement, otherwise it is merely unpaid. I presume that you have an agreement with the staff as part of your conditions of service that they must bring a medical certificate on a Monday or Friday before or after a public holiday. If there is no agreement then staff can take sick leave on a one day basis without a doctors certificate and insist on payment.
