From April 2010, the new electronic ‘Fit Note’ – which replaces the paper-based sick note – is being rolled out across Britain and all employers need to play their part.
People Resolutions is hosting a free online webinar on Tuesday 4th May to help organisations get to grips with Dame Carol Black’s call to focus on the health of Britain’s working-age population and to improve communication between employers, employees and GPs.
To help you understand the new Fit for Work Scheme, what it includes and how it affects your organisation, join the free 1-hour webinar on 4th May 2010 at 3pm (BST). Specifically, the webinar will explore:
- What the scheme is and how it works
- What it means for employers
- What it means for HR professionals.
To present this interactive and educational webinar there will be a selection of speakers including our Head of Practice, Linda Hoskinson, and special guest speaker, Gail Kovacs, who has been involved in the consultation for the development of the Fit for Work Scheme.
Gail has 35 years of front-line, management and project experience in health care and vocational rehabilitation in both the public and private sector, and in the UK, Europe, Canada and the United States. As a Trustee and Vice Chair of the Vocational Rehabilitation Association (VRA) in the UK, Gail has supported standards development with the VRA, the UK Rehabilitation Council and the British Standards Institution.
