Many employers already see the case to invest in health and wellbeing. But some employers, particularly smaller ones, might not have the knowledge or time to support their employees with health conditions, even when they want to. This consultation seeks to address these challenges.

The government is putting forward a package of measures which encourage early and supportive action by employers for their employees with health conditions. Taken together, these proposals aim to reduce ill health-related job loss and support people to thrive in work.

This conference call is an opportunity to learn more about the proposed measures. We welcome your feedback on these proposals to ensure that they are as effective, and cost effective, as possible.
