[Adopted 1-14-1980 by Res. No. 3-80 (Ch. 1, Part 7A, of the 1988 Code)]
Under the following conditions, an employee who is absent because of illness shall, upon returning to work, be required to present a Doctor's Certificate which indicates that the employee was unable to work because of illness:
A doctor's certificate does not automatically mean that an illness will be excused. If the doctor's certificate does not specify that the employee was unable to work due to illness, or other information indicates that the employee was not absent for a legitimate reason, the absence may be deemed unexcused. If the employee is required to submit a doctor's certificate and fails to do so, or submits an unsatisfactory one, the absence shall be considered unexcused.
