Part I

22. Proof of Incapacity

 

 

(1) An employer shall not be required to pay an employee in terms of clause 21 of this Agreement if the employee has been absent from work for more than two consecutive days or on more than two occasions during an eight-week period and, on request by the employer, does not produce a medical certificate stating that the employee was unable to work for the duration of the employee's absence on account of sickness or injury.

 

(2) The medical certificate shall be issued and signed by a medical practitioner or any other person who is certified to diagnose and treat patients and who is registered with a professional council established by an Act of Parliament.

 

(3) If it is not reasonably practicable for an employee who lives on the employer's premises to obtain a medical certificate, the employer may not withhold payment in terms of subclause (1) hereof unless the employer provides reasonable assistance to the employee to obtain the certificate.
