I've just gone through this with my workplace! Not fair to be questioned over sick leave.. I was hospitalised after an injury (not work related) & had a medical cert from the hospital stating I was an inpatient at that time and they still questioned my days off!

The nearest I have ever been to being doubted is, "Please bring in a doctor's cert for our files", and that was when I took a week off!

My work did a similar thing. I actually feel better I'm not the only one it's happened to!

I thought it bordered on illegal to question you about it if you had certificates etc.
totally inappropriate. You are entitled to personal leave. You do not need to justify yourself to your boss.

As others have said if you have a medical certificate and entitled leave they can't question you

The only questions they can legally ask you is if your illness/injury will have an impact on your ability to work when you return. As a HRM the less I know the better. If there are issues down the line they can claim that I treated them unfairly because I knew things, for example.
FYI - A stat dec from a Pharmacist is also enough "evidence"

Glad you're feeling better OP and got a chance to rest up.
My boss is the same, it's so stressful I went to work on Friday even though I had food poisoning as I felt like I couldn't call in sick. Thank God for immodium!
When DS started daycare and was getting sick a lot she gave me a hard time about that, like she thought I was making it up so I could stay home... Never mind that the medical certs that I provided were from the hospital as he was admitted 3 times!
