illness, injury and disability

We’re all human, and from time to time, we may have to miss work due to an illness, injury or disability. You could have to stay home for any number of reasons, but the process you have to follow to report your absence and the benefits for which you may be eligible is influenced by the reason for your absence and the length of time you’ll be away from work.
