As an employer, knowing the process and what to do when an employee is off sick or has a high sickness absence rate is important. Also, how much you will be paying them and what to do if they suffer with a long-term illness which could be classed as a disability.
A robust sickness absence policy can help with all of this, by making it crystal clear what behaviour you expect from your employees and what they can expect from you.
To save you time, and to protect your business – I’ve pulled together a policy template for you to give to your new or existing employees.

👉You can find yourself in hot water legally, if you don’t put the right things in place to prevent and stamp out bullying and harassment in your workplace.
👉In fact, GOV.UK tribunal statistics show that in 2018/19, there were 114 discrimination claims awarded compensation for: race, sex, disability, religion, sexual orientation, and age discrimination. The largest ever UK award for sex discrimination amounted to a whopping £1,762,130 in 2015/16. Oh, and there’s no cap on the fines compensation for discrimination claims.
MY TOP TIP
💡As the boss, always set a super example, by asking how your employee is once a month, to proactively identify any health concerns and communicating what happens if an employee goes off sick.
