Podcast: Short-term sickness absence in the workplace

In this week's podcast, we discuss different aspects of short-term sickness absence and explore the practical steps that employers can take when dealing with this type of absence.

In particular, we cover:

  • the employer's first steps when an employee calls in sick;
  • why it's important to record and review absences;
  • the issue of pay during sick leave;
  • managing short-term sickness absence; and
  • whether or not there are any discrimination implications arising from short-term sickness absence.

Presenter Ellie Gelder is joined by Sarah Anderson. Edited and produced by Claire Scullin.
