Managing Sick Leave and Medical Incapacity 2022 - 24 May 2022 (On Demand)


Difficult situations arise when employees are unable to work due to illness or injury. If your staff are absent due to Covid-19 or longterm sickness, this may disrupt your workplace.

In this webinar, we will discuss current challenges relating to sick leave, and answer questions such as:

  • What is the increase to staff sick leave entitlements?
  • How do you manage and pay staff sick or isolating with Covid-19?
  • How can you seriously reduce unwarranted absenteeism, such as ‘sickies’?

Managing sick leave entitlements and dealing with extended sick leave are common issues affecting all employers.

We will answer questions to help you deal with longterm absenteeism, including:

  • How can you support staff returning to work?
  • When can you terminate employment for medical incapacity?
