Can an employer require a certification for sick time?

Employers can require certification of the need for sick time if an employee used sick time for more than 24 consecutively scheduled work hours. Employers can not delay the taking of or payment for earned sick time because they have not received the certification. Employees have to make a good faith effort to notify the employer in advance if the need for earned sick time is foreseeable.
