Time off work following a hysterectomy
Please can you advise me as to the legal time allowed off work following a hysterectomy? I have an employee who has advised me that she will require 6 - 8 weeks leave. Please advise if this is correct, and if so, is this time fully paid sick leave?

Many thanks

The normal time off work is 6-8 weeks and this would be full sick leave.
