|Consultation on revised draft policy on Management of Sickness Absence Policy and Guidance||Human Resources||Management of Sickness Absence Policy and Guidance|
The Office of Human Resources is consulting on a revised draft Policy (previous title: ‘Employee Attendance at Work Policy’) and Guidance. The Guidance clarifies the responsibilities of managers, members of staff, Human Resources and Occupational Health; sets out procedures in respect of record keeping and reporting procedures for sickness absence; defines absence ‘triggers’ and offers advice to managers on conducting ‘Return to work’ discussions. Advice is offered on Occupational Health Referrals and the Occupational Health Assessment process is explained.
The document provides Flow Charts which summarise both Reporting and managing sickness absence procedures. Model Forms designed to support the Management of Sickness Absence Policy are included as a guide to enable Departments, Boards and Offices to design documentation that meets their needs whilst at the same time incorporating the core sickness data which needs to be recorded across Government.
