Tuesday.
Depends on what you work / your shifts. If your Mon-Fri, then yeah, it's valid for the last day (i.e Monday 1st), so you would go back on the Tuesday. If you do shift work, I'd check with your employer, as they may give you Tuesday as one of your scheduled days off.
go back when you are better ?

If you're signed off then you're not insured at your place of work and they have to send you home. Only reason you can turn up to work is to hand in paperwork relating to the sickness.
Cheers, thought so, just double checking

What a load of twaddle! ... Fit note's state "You can go back to work as soon as you feel able to and, with your employer's agreement, this may be before your fit note runs out"!

Not where I work, the above applies. You can't come back before the date on the letter as you're not insured.

Fit note and sick note are two seperate things. You can self-cert a "fit note" but not a sick note, which has to be gained from a GP.

Incorrect! Things have changed since Noah was building the Ark! You don't get a "Sick note" anymore, they're called Fit Notes!

That was the case until Fit Notes were brought in ... Not any longer!
Self Certification Sick Note (SC2) aka; self-cert

Sick Note aka, Statement of Fitness for Work

But hey, let's not get pedantic.

Got to admit it last time I checked after long term sick you had to get checked out to go back to work. I guess they've changed it to take the load off the NHS and save a few pounds.
