Whether planned or unplanned, short or long term, employee absence can affect productivity and morale at work. That’s why it’s so important for both the employer and the employee to work together to keep unplanned absences down while managing planned absences. This module will illustrate general best practice for reporting and certificating sickness absence at work, handling your return to work and touching on serious and long-term illness. It will also explore the various possibilities for contractual planned absence and detail an employee’s statutory rights for parental leave and the return to work.
This short course is worth approximately 15 minutes of CE/CPD.
