Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hi there. There is nothing legally topping you from going on holiday whilst you are off sick. Being off sick does not mean you have to remain in your house or in the country. Sometimes a holiday may even help with a person's rehabilitation so it is allowed. You do not need permission from anyone to do so, but it may be a good idea to inform the employer in case they may find out via other means. It will only be a potential issue if it bring into question the reasons for the absence. So let;s say you were signed off with a bad back, but then went on a skiing holiday, questions will be asked about whether the sickness absence was genuine. However,, in this case it should not be an issue as long as you have a reasonable explanation as to why you chose to do it.
