A series of roadshows have been held recently to explain how to use the Government’s new Fit for Work service. Here are the answers to common questions asked by delegates at the events.
Fit for Work, a free service designed to help people who are off sick for four weeks or more to return to work, has been visiting cities throughout England and Wales with a series of employer roadshows.
The series of full-to-capacity events were designed to help employers understand Fit for Work and how to refer their employees, as well as discuss the issue of long-term sickness absence and put questions to a panel of experts.
Fit for Work representatives teamed up with workplace advice and conciliation service Acas to deliver a comprehensive briefing to attendees. David Frost CBE also visited parts of the country with the Fit for Work team, giving a presentation on why he recommended Fit for Work in his 2011 “Independent Review of Sickness Absence” report.
