Sickness and Absence Services

Few businesses can afford to be without a skilled and experienced member of staff for too long - not to mention the expense of sick pay, overtime or additional salaries paid for cover staff. Handling long and short terms absence is a major concern for all employers.

for advice without obligation on absence procedures.

How can absences be managed effectively?

We recognise that short-term absence - especially increased non attendance on Monday and Friday is extremely disruptive for your business, especially if you have limited resources. Equally, any absence can have a huge impact on those members of staff left to pick up the extra work. Long-term absence could be caused by a disability or underlying issue. Working with occupational health professionals, we can help with the practical adjustments you may be required to make to comply with the law.

As specialist HR professionals and employment lawyers we can help you address absences fairly and effectively by:

  • Reviewing your options when you may doubt that an employee is genuinely unwell
  • Establishing the cause of the ill-health and, where the absence is work related, what steps should be taken
  • Investigating whether there is a relevant disability and what adjustments should be considered
  • Clarifying employees entitlement to statutory and discretionary sick pay and holiday pay
  • Aiding reintroduction of an employee who returns to work after long-term absence
  • Providing information on how to decide if it is appropriate to dismiss the employee on ill health grounds

Absence Management Support

Managing sick or disabled employees can be challenging from a practical perspective and can also present a wide range of legal issues including potential claims of unfair dismissal, discrimination, negligence or breach of contract.
