Managing the employment of long-term ill or injured employees can often be difficult, and can involve legal, operational and emotional risk, especially if employment is terminated. There is a range of claims which an aggrieved employee can make against their former employer.

What we'll cover

  • What you can do when an employee runs out of sick leave
  • The extent to which adjustments need to be made to an ill and injured employee's job
  • How to respond when an ill or injured employee claims they are being bullied
  • The steps employers can take when they have doubts about the legitimacy of the employee's illness or injury
  • The role of medical evidence, including how to obtain it, how to get the information you need and why terminations without it are difficult to defend
  • An employer's privacy obligations when collecting information about employees
  • The statutory workers' compensation scheme, and the obligations (and restrictions) this places on an employer
  • Whether your policies are comprehensive enough and legally compliant.

What you'll learn

  • A greater awareness of the variety of sources of legal obligation with which employers must comply
  • Vital knowledge that will assist your organisation manage, and if necessary terminate, the employment of a long-term ill or injured employee
  • Measures to minimise the risk of successful claims being brought against you
  • Lessons from real life war stories about where other managers have got it wrong, and what you can do to learn from their mistakes.
