If a fractional employee is sick outside their total contract length, this does not need to be reported. However, if the fractional employee is off sick during their total contract length (ie designated working weeks), this should be reported in the same way as any other member of staff. Fractional staff will continue to receive the same sickness entitlements. Please see the Sickness Absence section for further information.

If a period of long-term sickness spans the designated and non-working weeks, the employee continues to submit a "statement of fitness for work" until the period of sickness comes to an end.
