The Government’fit note’ system (the ‘Statement of Fitness for Work’) has been effective since 6th April 2010. The statement replaced the old sick note. The “fit note” lists the common types of changes employers can introduce to assist a return to work: “a phased return to work”, “amended duties”, “altered hours” and “workplace adaptations”.
