The occasional sick day may not be an issue with a single employee, but longer absences with larger groups of the workforce can have a hugely debilitating impact on your business. Sickness absence costs UK organisations around £29 billion every year, according to the CIPD.

It’s a tricky challenge to deal with, so fully understanding the legal rights of the employer can make all the difference.

In our next HR Expert webinar, we’ve invited an employment law specialist and renowned podcaster, Alison Colley, to share her practical tips to reduce sickness absence in your business. Specifically, Alison will cover: 

  • Simple solutions to implement to reduce sickness absences
  • How to approach long-term absence management 
  • Considerations under the Equality Act including the duty to make reasonable adjustments
