Sickness Absence and Ill-Health Management in business

Sickness Absence and Ill-Health Management in business

Sickness absences impact negatively on your business operation and are a challenging issue.  We can help you manage sickness absence proactively.

How you handle sickness absence will then depend on the type of absence, its cause and likely duration.

Gotelee’s Employment Team knows how to keep you on the right side of the law and out of trouble.  We can draft policies and procedures which will help you and your managers to handle absences effectively and legally.  We can train your managers on how to handle these situations.  This reduces avoidable mistakes, allowing you to manage your risk.

Ultimately, you may have to consider terminating a member of staff’s employment, if they are unable to return to work within a reasonable timescale or if their illness prevents them from carrying out their work.  Handle this badly, and you face unfair dismissal and disability discrimination claims.  In some cases, you could risk a personal injury claim too.  We can guide you through the process, so that the matter is handled quickly and effectively, avoiding claims.

Our charges

As with everything we do, our charges are very reasonable and tailored to the work that you would like us to do.  In the vast majority of cases, we will agree a fixed fee for your work, so that you can safely budget, with no fear of receiving an unexpected bill from us. We also offer a Fixed Price HR Retainer.  This allows you real time expert employment advice from our team, all year round, at a price you can afford.
