Essential line manager training - Absence management

Essential line manager training: Absence management


Persistent or long term absence from work can cause major disruption to employers. In our experience, many managers ignore these issues because they take the view that the employee that if the employee is not in work, they are not a problem to them or the business. However, sick pay and other associated payments cost employers millions of pounds annually. Further, ignorance of the matter can itself lead to claims. In our experience, proactive management of absence issues discourages persistent short term absence and can encourage the return of long term absentees.

The aim of the training session is to highlight the legal issues that can arise with absence management, such as disability claims. We will encourage them to explore the reasons behind the absence and then provide them with a toolkit to manage the situation. We will also discuss when they should seek medical advice and, if they do, how to get the best out of such medical referrals.
