Sickness Absence

Sickness Absence

When employees are unable to come to work due to ill health, we support them and their managers in their return to work.

As well helping employees improve their attendance we provide advice on sick pay entitlement and referrals to occupational health.


What you need to know

If you’re experiencing an illness that prevents you from being able to attend work, or carry out some of your duties, we will work with you and your manager to find a solution. We also offer guidance on:

  • Dealing with stress
  • Phased return to work
  • Disability leave
  • Counselling
  • Chronic illness at work
