Managing sickness absence

This can often be one of the hardest issues for employers to deal with, and absence can take many different forms, such as long-term sickness, maternity leave, absence related to a disability, or several instances of short-term absence.

Employers need to be particularly careful in how they manage employees who fall into one of the above categories, as a failure to do so could result in any number of claims to the Employment Tribunal.  Whilst we understand that such situations can be incredibly frustrating and in some cases costly to the employer, it will only end up becoming more costly if the situations are not managed correctly.
