Tricky sickness issues – employers’ questions answered (webinar available on demand)

Tuesday 26 March 2019, 11:00am GMT

Handling the tricky issues that can arise when an employee is on sick leave can be challenging for HR. Sickness absence requires sensitive management coupled with a clear understanding of the law.

Finding an appropriate balance between supporting the employee and facilitating their return to work is often far from straightforward.

How should you adjust trigger points in your absence policy if an employee is disabled? What can you do if an employee refuses to cooperate with occupational health? And does absence due to depression require different handling?

In XpertHR’s 60-minute webinar at 11:00am GMT on Tuesday 26 March, Darren Newman, an employment lawyer with more than 20 years’ experience, will tackle these issues and more.

This on-demand webinar includes a Q&A session.
