I understand from the details supplied that the Deputy is enquiring about whether a policy will be introduced requiring civil servants to include any element of paid sick leave in claims for damages arising as a result of the actions of a third party. I understand that this is provided for in sick leave policies in other sectors of the public service. Work is underway in my Department with the aim on consolidating all sick leave policy into one circular for the civil service. The inclusion of such a policy is being considered in this context.
