My employee needs to self-isolate due to COVID-19. What evidence do they need to provide?

An employee is required to inform their employer that they are going to be taking unpaid pandemic leave, and the reason for taking it.

This is to occur as soon as possible and can be after the leave has started. They should also inform their employer of how long they expect to be off work.

An employer can request evidence that shows why the employee took unpaid pandemic leave. This may be in various forms such as a medical certificate or a letter from the Department of Health.
