COPFS Employee Sick Leave (R008970)

Freedom of Information: COPFS Employee Sick Leave (R008970)

Thank you for your request dated 5 November 2014 under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) for the undernoted information: 

“1. The number of Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service employees currently on sick leave.
2.  The percentage of Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service employees currently on sick leave.
3.  The number of days lost to employee sick leave for each month since November 2011.
4.  The number of employees on sick leave for each month since November 2011”


Having completed my search for the information you request, I can advise that in respect of Question 1 as at 18 November 2014, 53 Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) staff were recorded on the HR system as being on sick leave.

In respect of Question 2; the percentage of COPFS staff currently on sick leave is 3.09%.  The staffing figure used to calculate this percentage is based on those staff at work or on paid leave as at 31 October 2014.

In respect of questions 3 and 4, I have attached a table which shows the number of working days lost each month to sick leave and the number of employees on sick leave for each month since November 2011 to the end of September 2014.  It should be noted that if an employee has been absent more than once in the same month, that employee has only been counted once in that month.  If an employee has been absent over a period of months, they have been counted once in every month they were absent.
