Absence can present itself as high frequency, ad hoc sickness absence or longer term absence – both cases having an impact on the management of your business.
Both long and short term sickness absence can be a drain on your business and can set off a chain of events creating more problems, such as, a demotivated team covering the absentee’s work.
We can advise you on your options for dealing with frequent or long term sickness absence. Or you may be contemplating a dismissal on the grounds of long-term ill-health which can easily lead to a claim for discrimination if you have not followed a robust capability dismissal procedure.
Let us weigh up the risks, outline your options, and get the result you want whilst minimising the risk to your business.
