XpertHR sick pay survey 2010: fit notes

Author: Adam Geldman

The XpertHR survey of sick pay polices and procedures investigates the use of "fit notes" and finds that, in the experience of many employers, the new arrangements are not working as well as originally envisaged. 

Key points

  • Only one-third of respondents have, in all cases, fully implemented a GP's recommendations included in the fit note.
  • There is a broad acceptance of, and support for, the intentions underpinning the new system.
