Long-term absence is one of the greatest challenges faced by employers. It can not only result in a significant cost and disruption to business, but it can often also be challenging to manage.
Unfortunately, the reality of the situation is that the longer someone is off sick, the less likely they are to make a successful return to work. To manage such situations effectively, employers need to manage long term absence in a way that is compassionate, commercially realistic, and legally compliant.
In this webinar, employment associate Briony McDermott will focus on:
- Managing and minimising the impact of absences
- Managing a successful return to work
- What happens when there is no reasonable prospect of return
