No boss in their right mind would give you time off to go for a job interview with another company. You should use your lunch hour (although that would probable not be enough time) or take leave. However, a boss does not have to approve your leave if you haven’t given the appropriate notice and if it is an inconvenient time for the company. Telling the truth depends on your boss, however taking sick leave when you are not sick is immoral (Lead South Africa – does not approve of this behaviour), and you could lose you job if found out, and you may not get the new job (also a new employer may not like the idea that you have abused sick leave, even if it is to attend their interview). If you can not attend an interview during your normal working hours ask the new company for an interview either before or after work.
