When an employee goes off sick, a business might be faced with a number of issues depending on whether the absence is likely to be short or long term. In cases of short-term sickness there may be issues over frequent patterns of absence or concerns as to whether absence is genuine.
Long term sickness absence may require an understanding of whether the employee is medically capable of performing the job and when they are likely to return to work. In more serious cases, long term sickness might lead to a termination of employment.
Either way, employers should handle cases of sickness absence carefully and sensitively, ensuring that proper procedures are followed to manage absence and fully inform themselves before any decision is made which may affect the employee’s future employee.
Likewise, it’s not just sickness absence that can affect a business. Employees may be absent for a number of reasons including medical appointments, bereavement and caring for family members. If absence levels are a problem, our team of experts can provide advice on all stages of managing absence, be that supporting the employee’s return to work or assisting the business with bringing employment to an end.
