Sickness absence

Failing to manage sickness absence appropriately can result in strained employment relationships and at in some cases, can result in a range of claims against your organisation including unfair dismissal, disability discrimination and in some instances, personal injury.

Short and long term sickness absence

There are different factors to consider depending upon whether absence takes the form of short regular spells, or is of long-term duration.  We are familiar with the issues and complexities that both forms can give rise to.

We can assist you by:

  • Drafting sickness absence policies;
  • Providing advice and support on a case by case basis;
  • Obtaining up to date medical information where appropriate;
  • Resolving statutory sick pay queries; and
  • Resolving holiday and sickness absence queries.
