Is it legal to work during Sick Leave?

Post by popeyeps » Wed Jun 14, 2017 8:57 pm

Hi,

I had a minor surgery and doctor provided medical certificate for 3 weeks sick leave. Am I allowed to work during the sick leave for few hours everyday?
It was a minor surgery and I just cannot go to office as I have to change the dressing every couple of hours, that's the reason Doctor advised for 3 weeks sick leave.
So I am also OK with working for few hours on a day. I conveyed this to my manager and he mentioned its OK to work as far as it is fine with me.

My question is - am I allowed to book time sheet as 7.5 hours as sick leave and working hours as flexi hours (or plus hours)? Or should I agree it separately with my manager on how should I book the time? How does this normally works here?
I am a software consultant and part of ITES collective agreement union. Thank you.

I don't think sick leave is a forced leave. If you want to work and are able to work you can work. You just shouldn't be cheating anybody e.g your employer, the system or the state.

If you are working it should be declared and you shouldn't be working for anybody else while on sick leave from your main job

My question is how I should book my work time during these days?
As I will be able to work only few hours a day (say 3 hours against 7.5 hours regular), is it mean 4.5 hours as sick leave and 3 hours as work time?
