Employment Breakfast Briefing: Managing sickness absence

25 March 2014

Practice Area: Employment Law

An apple a day keeps HR away? Dealing with sickness in the workplace

Managing sickness absence remains a perennial problem for HR practitioners and business owners. In this briefing, we will look at the most common sickness related queries that our clients ask us:

  • when is it acceptable to dismiss an employee due to persistent or long term sickness absence?
  • Disability Discrimination Act 1995: where are we on “reasonable adjustments”?
  • sickness absence and accrual of holiday
  • proposals for changes to SSP recoupment

If you would like to attend please contact Stephen Maguire from the Carson McDowell events team before 5pm on Wednesday 19th of March.
