Frequently Asked Questions

A stress leave certificate is a document issued by a healthcare provider to confirm that an individual requires time off work due to stress-related health concerns. This is usually requested when a person is exhausted due to work or dealing with life issues. According to Fair Work Australia, the classification of stress leave as paid sick leave or annual leave can vary depending on the severity of the stress experienced by the employee.

Stress leave becomes necessary when the situation is severe and cannot be resolved without taking a break. Signs indicating the need for stress leave include:

  • Being unable to fulfil job responsibilities effectively.
  • Stress levels interfering with work performance.

This depends on various factors such as company policies, employment contracts, and the evidence provided by the employee. While employees have the right to request stress leave when they are experiencing significant mental health issues or stress-related concerns, employers may reject such requests if they believe there are insufficient grounds or if the request does not comply with company procedures.
