Summary Dismissal Letter

Version 1.0 Updated 19 Mar 2018
Correspondence Separation

This notice must be given as soon as practicable, which could be at a time after the period of leave has started. Employees must also advise the employer of the period, or expected period, of the leave.

Importantly, if the employer requires, the employee must provide reasonable evidence of the circumstances leading to them taking leave pursuant to section 107 of the Fair Work Act 2009. The circumstances are that the leave is or was taken:

  • because the employee is not fit for work because of a personal illness or personal injury affecting the employee, or
  • to provide care and support to a member of the employee’s immediate family, or a member of the employee’s household who requires care or support because of a personal illness or personal injury affecting the member, or an unexpected emergency affecting the member.


In appropriate circumstances, the Statutory Declaration — Personal/Carer’s Leave can be completed by employees if they need to provide a statutory declaration in support of the particular absence. 

If an employee is a state public sector or local government employee in the State of New South Wales they will need to complete the New South Wales Statutory Declaration — Personal/Carer’s Leave found on Workplace.
