Yep this is consistant with many workplaces. If it is a single day, usually that can count as a carers day against sick leave without cert (usually 5 single days per year). If it is a few days then documentation is usually needed, this then comes off the sick leave with cert time.
Might be worth checking the carers leave policies for his workplace - you might be able to have him submit a stat dec instead.

Dependant on workplace I guess.
My DH is currently taking 3 days off a week for 3 weeks as "primary carers leave" as I've had an op and can't pick up the kids, hence can't be alone with them.
His work haven't even asked for proof but I'll be getting a certificate for both of us at my follow up appt, just in case its asked for down the track.
Hope you get it sorted

I'm in HR and if the manager or employee asked me about the medical cert I would have advised the certificate needs to state your DH is looking after you. I don't think the boss is being a tool, just following policy. Sorry it's a hassle I can see why you think that

Not all companies I guess. DH is fifo with one of the majors and thats how it's written into his contract....
Anyway not here to debate or be right, was just my opinion

The cert has to cover the actual person taking the leave. The doc needs to write a certificate for your husband as he is the employee not you.

My Dh had to get that specified on doc certificate when I had my bub. I had to have a c section and he had some time off to look after ds1 while I was in hospital. We had to specify that he was the primary carer for me and ds1 and ds2 during that time. My sister who is a hr director in a big company agreed that it was reasonable.
