Apologies for not getting back to you sooner, I experienced some temporary connection issues and could not get back on the site until now. All appears to be resolved now so I can continue dealing with your query.
You are indeed entitled to receive a further sick note to cover the latest period of absence from 1 Dec onwards but the failure to receive one so far does not mean she is no longer employer there. As an employer should also try and chase her to see what has happened and remind her to supply the note if she is to remain on sick leave. Only if you hear nothing or she fails to supply a note can you consider taking further action which may eventually result in dismissal. But you should not assume that when has left or that she is dismissed, you need to give her the opportunity to sort this. So invite her to a meeting and if she does not turn up or does not reply then give her one more chance and state that it can eventually result in dismissal. That is how it should be terminated rather than just an assumption in your part.
I hope this has answered your query. I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you. If you need me to clarify anything before you go - please get back to me on here and I will assist further as best as I can. Thank you

Hi have asked her to come to pick up her sick pay and have a chat but she states she cant get up and her boyfriend will come and collect
She does not need to attend personally if she is unable to so if her boyfriend can submit her notes he ma continue doing so but you can also aarange to see her at some point if she agrees, maybe even in her house just to see how she is doing
