Can a supervisor require a doctors note from an employee (exempt or non-exempt) that uses sick time?
The supervisor may require a medical certificate form a health care provider to verify illnesses of more than three working days or before allowing an Administrative/Professional employee to return to work. However, should there be reason to doubt the employee’s absence of two consecutive days or less (because of repeated instances or absences before or after holidays or scheduled days off), the supervisor may request a verification of illness from a health care provider. Please refer to the appropriate Sick Time Policy for more information.
