Sickness & Absence

Join our team of experts as they guide you through the next topics in our 2023 series:

9am-10.30am: Managing Sickness

An old favourite, this is one of our most popular sessions.  Let our expert team guide you through the various steps of managing both long and short term sickness, how to prevent presenteeism, and how to spot when sickness absence is masking other issues.

We’ll take a look at the recently-published revised guidance on Fit Notes, as well as some of the tools available to help you track and tackle sickness.

11am-12.30pm: Unplanned Absence

Often, other absences are recorded as sickness – sometimes to take advantage of paid sickness, sometimes because employees don’t want to share private family matters with their employer.  In this session, we’ll take a look at the other types of unplanned absence – including emergency dependant leave, compassionate leave and parental leave – how to manage them and record them accurately and how to discuss these wit with your team.
