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

Date: Tuesday 4 July 2023
Time: 8:30am – 09:45am
Venue: Freeths LLP, 1 Vine Street, London W1J 0AH

Nearest tube: Piccadilly Circus or Green Park Station
Arrive from 8.30am for a light breakfast, with the seminar starting promptly at 8.45am.
