For small businesses, employing people is a costly resource. You spend hours of your time preparing the job advert, ensuring that the job description reflects the role, screening CVs and interviewing them. So hopefully they will show up for work and have a clean attendance record. Right?
So what happens when someone is sick in their first week? first month? or continually sick in their probation period?
When is their sickness a problem, and how is it best to tackle it?
As a team, we'll discuss different ways in which you deal with sickness, share our own experiences of what works well and how we can manage it better.
We'll take a look at sickness documents that support the process and have a go at practising meetings such as return to work interviews and dismissal meetings.
You'll learn how to bring the sickness documents to life, future trigger points to use which flag up when you need to step in to stop it becoming a problem.
