Short Term Sickness Absence Policy & Procedure
It might surprise you that there’s no statutory right for an employee to take time off work due to sickness, however it is universally accepted that employees should be able to take time off to recover when they are sick.
Employment contracts normally provide sickness provisions, and a sickness or absence policy are also useful tools to help establish sickness absence rules in your business.
A short-term sickness absence policy and procedure sets out how you will manage sickness absence in your organisation, ensuring everyone is on the same page and helping to reduce the risk of employment tribunal claims.
