HR Advice – What to do if someone is off sick

/ 0 Comments /

Employee sickness, it happens all of the time. Sometimes it’s for a day or two and sometimes it can be a lot longer.

A very important element of what we do and how we give HR advice is going through the correct procedure to follow when someone is off sick. This is because when somebody is off sick it can often be very disruptive to your business. There are various different paths you can take when dealing with employee absence. These paths can depend on several things such as, whether or not the absence is short-term or long-term.

This video will mainly focus on short-term absence. We will explain what you can do so that you and your member of staff are covered and everyone knows what to expect when they return back to work. We also explain the kind of employee absence that you need to watch out for, the kind of absence we often refer to as ‘red day people’.

When giving HR advice on employee absence one of the first things we would ask you is, what does your procedure/policy or contract say? This is important because you need to be making sure that your employee knows what to do. They need to know what the procedure actually is when they are off sick.

When your employee is off sick, we always recommend that you do a return to work interview with them. You should do this no matter how long they were off sick whether it was a day or 100 days. You can sit down with your employee and ask them some questions and assess whether or not they are fit to come back to work.
