We do not need to be told about sickness absences.


When absences other than sickness start, please send spfo@glasgow.gov.uk an email with Absence as its Subject to advise us that the absence has started. Note: if there is a widespread strike, do not send us an email, as we will issue bespoke instructions to prevent us being flooded with emails.  


When the (non-sickness) absence has finished, either send us:

Absence (Word Doc)

Absence (Excel spreadsheet)

Note: Each time you send us an Excel spreadsheet, we suggest that you use an individual password and encrypt it.


Making good pension lost due to absences after 31 March 2015

If some of the period of absence falls after 31 March 2015 and the employee wants to make good their pension, direct your employee at the APC calculator to generate the APC application form to advise us that the employee is paying back some or the entire pension lost by the absence. The APC process from an employer's point of view is detailed in our APC flowchart for extra pension or in our APC flowchart for lost pension.
