Podcast: Long-term sickness assessments after the demise of Fit for Work

Enabling the return to work of employees on long-term sickness absence remains an ongoing issue for employers, despite the Government's decision to close the Fit for Work assessment service, following low referral rates.

Eversheds Sutherland partner Naeema Choudry joins us to discuss what the demise of the service means for employers and the options available when assessing employees on long-term sickness absence.

Presenter Laura Merrylees is joined by Naeema Choudry. Edited and produced by Colin Miller.
