Next stop in our HOW TO series!
McDermott Will & Emery's Employment Group is pleased to announce the latest in our HOW TO series of complimentary breakfast seminars.
The HOW TO series takes a practical look at what you have been telling us are the key employment issues affecting you, highlighting the latest legal developments in each area and drawing on our wealth of experience to give you pragmatic, user-friendly guidance on HOW TO deal with these matters confidently and effectively.
The next issue we will look at is HOW TO effectively manage employee ill health issues, and we would be delighted if you joined us.
Employee ill health issues can be challenging for even the most experienced HR professional, and we will take a matter-of-fact look at some of the issues that commonly arise, including:
- Dealing with ill health – A look at how employers can pro-actively manage long-term sickness absence, including reasonable adjustments and the scope for dismissal on the ground of capability, as well as how to deal with absence during a disciplinary process, and when purported sickness absence may be treated as a disciplinary issue
- Professional advice – An overview of when and how an employer can access employee medical records, and how the employer can involve its own medical and occupational health professionals to best effect
- Policy matters – Tricks and tips for drafting (and operating) effective sick pay and sickness absence policies, including dealing with the interplay between sickness absence and holiday
This seminar will be both a useful refresher and a cutting-edge look at HOW TO use the latest legal developments in this area to your advantage that even the most experienced HR professional will find useful.
We are eager to hear your views! Members of the Employment Group will be on hand before and after the seminar to discuss any issues affecting your business. We hope to see you there.
