Tackling Sickness Absence with Michael Bauer of Cumbria Employments Solicitors, Newton Rigg, 28 February – Cumbria Chamber of Commerce

Events calendar

Whether it is staff who have a poor sickness record due to sporadic days off sick here and there or someone on long-term sick, such absences all have an impact on a business, on productivity and sometimes on the morale and attitude of other staff.

This practical and “can-do” training will use hand-outs, sample letters and real examples:

  • Provide practical tips and guidance to minimise avoidable absence;
  • Give clear advice and techniques for tackling repeat short-term absences;
  • Explain the process for handling long-term absence, including dismissing fairly when appropriate;
  • Look at alternatives to the usual sickness absence processes.

In essence, the training is about helping you to get the best out of your staff fairly and with the minimum of risk, hassle and cost.


Who will Benefit from the Training

The training is aimed at anyone who manages staff including business owners, managers, supervisors and HR teams and will give you the practical guidance and the confidence to tackle sickness absence.
