Working Well: Managing Sickness Absence
The number of working days lost to sickness in the UK reached a record high in 2022 of 185 million days (47 million more than pre-pandemic levels) and the number of people in work who have a long-term health condition has also risen.
Managing sickness absence can be a challenging issue for employers and HR professionals to deal with, which can involve balancing supporting an employee while dealing with the associated disruption that the absence can cause to a team.
Join our London Employment team for an in-person seminar in which we will discuss current best practice in this area including:
- When sickness absence becomes a problem
- How to conduct a fair capability procedure
- Disability and reasonable adjustments
- Dismissing fairly on the grounds of ill health
