Long-term sickness

Noelle MurphyEditor's message: Managing cases of long-term sickness absence requires specific tools and techniques. As an employer, you will need to manage cases of long-term sickness in a compassionate and compliant manner, while at the same time minimising the impact on the business.

Managing a successful return-to-work for an employee who has been absent from work is not always straightforward, particularly if you are required to make reasonable adjustments.

For detailed information on managing a phased return to work, see How To> How to implement a phased return to work after long-term sickness absence.
