Will taking sick leave during the notice period change my last day of work?

The notice period gives you and your employer time to plan for a handover of duties. As a responsible employee, you should work with your employer to ensure a smooth transition.

While you can take sick leave during the notice period, your sick leave will not change your last day of employment. You are still considered an employee until the end of your notice period.

You employer is also not allowed to extend your notice period because you took sick leave during this time.
