About this event

Mental Health Adviser Workshops brings you an exclusive online workshop for line managers, led by Jodie Hill, founder & managing partner at Thrive Law, employment law, HR, D&I and leadership specialist and mental health advocate.

Join us for our next Workshop: Line Manager Training – How to Manage Sickness Absence Due to Mental Ill Health taking place on Wednesday 24 August 2022. Secure your place now for only £60 + VAT, or take advantage of our group booking discount.

Poor mental health is the number one reason for time off, coming in at 319 million lost working days in 2021. But behind the headline figure, mental ill-health can cause employees to be off sick for a prolonged period of time. This can mean colleagues have to take up the slack, in turn, causing potential stress and burnout.

Managers also need to handle the absence correctly; failure to do so can prolong the absence and even result in potential disability discrimination claim.

During this workshop, managers will learn how to manage illness and absence due to mental ill-health.

Hosted by Jodie Hill, founder and Managing Partner of multi-award winning Thrive Law, this 60-minute workshop is intended to support line managers in the following:

  • Being clear on when mental health amounts to a disability and what could constitute disability discrimination.
  • How to manage the person who is on sick leave due to mental ill-health.
  • The importance of respecting the employee’s confidentiality.
  • Understanding sick pay and fit notes.
  • Making reasonable adjustments to mitigate the risk to the employee.
  • How to achieve a successful return to work.

Plus, the opportunity to have all your questions answered. Do you already have a question about managing illness and sickness absence? You can send your questions to us in advance to guarantee they get put to Jodie - simply send us an email using the contact details provided when you buy a ticket.

When: Wednesday 24 August 2022 at 2pm

Price: £60 + VAT
