Event Details

From only £149 + VAT : Full day of training, including lunch, template document pack, and optional post-course HR support.

Estimated to anually cost £554.00 per employee, absence is a cost to the business. Business owners and line managers are increasingly having to deal with more complex cases.

This highly practical course covers many aspects of absence and deals with some of the more complex scenarios and how to manage dismissals fairly on the grounds of capability. We will discuss:

  • How to manage employees who are absent without leave (AWOL)
  • What a statement of fitness for work is and what the employer can and can’t do
  • How to communicate with and respond to staff who are absent from work
  • Access to medical records and how to deal with a request
  • How to achieve focussed medical reports including what to ask the medical professionals
  • How to hold a capability meeting and how to conduct it
  • Dismissing an employee due to long term and / or short term absence
  • How to deal with stress, anxiety and depression related absences
  • How to manage disability related absences and consider reasonable adjustments

We will work through case studies based on real-life examples to help you make the right decisions in these difficult situations

FREE document template pack included

Slash the time taken by your everyday HR tasks and guard against the risk of poorly drafted documents by using our bang-up-to-date template pack. Prepared by our HR experts and guaranteed 2017 employment law compliant, which will save you hours of research and typing pain.  Provided as fully editable Word document files which makes them foolproof and hassle-free.

  • Attendance management policy
  • Performance improvement plan
  • Access to medical records consent form
  • Letter to GP / Occupational Health requesting medical report

Optional post-course HR support

The ‘course+support’ fee also includes up to 2 hours of email or phone support, valid for up to 6 months after your training.

On your return to the workplace, we’ll help you become confident in using your training to solve real world problems by providing you with a support hotline so that you have a sounding board to check your thinking until you’re fully up to speed. A team of 5 experienced and qualified HR consultants will be on-hand to help you.

FREE lunch & refreshments included

We’ve got some great local catering establishments nearby, so lunch from one of these is included in your course fee. And there will be tea, coffee, and cold drinks available on tap throughout the day.

We’re happy to do everything we can to accommodate any particular dietary or other requirements, so please let us know of these in advance
