Managing employee absence, whether short or longer term, is never far from the top of the HR manager’s remit.  Sickness has many guises and there is no one-size-fits-all approach for tackling workplace absences.  Tactics for managing long-term absence often demands a different approach to that required for repeated short-term absences.  October’s employment law breakfast seminar will tackle thorny issues which arise, including:

  • Medical reports and what to do if an employee refuses consent 
  • Managing difficult or sensitive conversations with absent employees
  • Keeping things moving when an employee calls in sick during a disciplinary process
  • What to do when a return to work is not on the horizon – can you dismiss?

In addition, we will provide you with an update on the most important cases and legislative updates from recent months.
