Managing Sickness Absence

Published on 10 August 2019


This seminar is aimed at employers who are faced with a sickness absence problem.  Sickness absence from work is a problem for many organisations and can affect productivity, morale and flexibility.  It can also be a burden on management time and a significant cost to the organisation through downtime, sickness payments, paying temporary replacement staff and overtime payments to cover absent employees.  The seminar will provide approaches to the handling of sickness absence either as a capability or a misconduct issue.

At the end of this seminar participants will be able to:

  • Distinguish between types and causes of sickness absence.
  • Manage and measure sickness absence from work.
  • Draft an Absence Policy.
  • Understand the legal framework affecting the management of sickness absence.

The seminar will start at 10.00am and will finish at approximately 12.30pm.
