Disability and Leave

Frequently Asked Questions

For Employees

A physician certification is a note that confirms your need for time off work due to a medical issue. You may present a memo from your physician or use the Department of Labor form. Please note, if you participate in the USC disability program, you will be sent separate documents that must be completed in addition to the memo provided to our office.
