Outline Content

People are going to be off sick from time to time. Most employees feel bad about letting down their colleagues and most employers are reasonably sympathetic about their staff's welfare.

But absence because of sickness, or another unexpected reason, can put your practice in a tricky situation, particularly if you have no policies in place for dealing with it.

Learning Outcomes

  • Consider policy and practice to manage different types of absence
  • Outline the difference between managing conduct and capability due to sickness
  • Give an overview of disability and the Equality Act
  • Consider options for managing short term and long term sick absence
