Effective strategies for dealing with employee sickness absence

Sick absence can not only result in having a negative impact and cost to a business but it can often also be challenging to manage. Managing sickness absence requires sensitivity, finding an appropriate balance between supporting the employee and facilitating their return to work.

In our next Employment Bitesize webinar we will concentrate on the key areas you need to consider and practical solutions to help you with the real-world aspects of managing sick absence.

We will be discussing the following issues:

-long term and short-term / intermittent employee sickness absence
-dealing with an uncooperative sick employee
-when to get an occupational health report and ensuring you instruct them properly
-consideration of disability issues
-reducing the risks when carrying out dismissals
