Can an employee use sick leave for elective surgery?

Can an employee use sick leave for elective surgery?

Yes. The employee would not be fit for work due to a medical condition, i.e. illness or injury being post-operative recovery. This entitles the employee to personal leave under the Fair Work Act. The entitlement applies whether or not the procedure is elective.
