UK Webinar – Managing Long-term Sickness Absence

Region: Europe
17 November 2022

A recording of this webinar is available online.

If the statistics are to be believed, long-term sickness absence (usually defined as lasting four weeks or more) remains a key challenge for UK employers, with long COVID now a top cause.

Join us at our webinar, where we will explore the key legal and practical issues that arise when managing long-term sickness absence.

We will consider:

  • The legal framework, including what is required to dismiss fairly
  • Managing employees on long-term sickness absence – potential pitfalls and how to avoid them
  • Working with Occupational Health
  • When an employee has a disability and how far this changes things

The main webinar presentation will last 55 minutes, followed by a five-minute online question and answer session.

This webinar will be of interest to in-house lawyers and line managers with responsibility for managing sickness absence, as well as HR professionals.
