When you add a new sickness record to an employee's profile, you will notice a number of status'.
OPEN: This means the employee has just logged a sickness and are currently off sick
RETURNED TO WORK: The employee has returned to work, however the sickness is still requiring some form of 'following up'. Meaning do you need the employee to provide a return to work form before the sickness can be closed
QUERY RAISED: The employee has returned, but you require clarification from the employee as to why they have been off sick.
COMPLETE: The employee has returned to work and does not require any further action to take place. If you close the sickness record, it will account to the total number of absences, however you can still add documentation at a later date if you need to.
