Sickness Absence Management
All employees will from time-to-time experience ill health. For the most part, this will not give rise to HR concerns. However, in cases where an employer has reason to doubt the sickness is genuine, where an employee has frequent short-term absences or where an employee is absent for long periods, the situation can be difficult for an employer to manage.
Beecham Peacock are here to help with all of your Employment Law problems.
It is important to deal with sickness absence fairly and sensitively. Most employees will want to return to work and sustain a return to work. In these cases, it is about assessing the workplace and the employee’s needs and capability to see whether a solution can be reached that meets everyone’s needs, a crucial element of sickness absence management.
It is important to remember that in situations where absence is related to a disability, that you must ensure your approach does not discriminate. You should also consider what, if any, reasonable adjustments may be required.
Our sickness absence management solicitors can provide guidance on drafting sickness absence policies. In addition we can support you through the sickness absence process for both short and long term sickness absences.
