Sickness Absence

Sickness absence results in a major cost to many employers. We can advise employers regarding sick pay obligations and the handling of dismissals due to ill health (whether it be persistent, intermittent absence or long term absence).

We have considerable experience of bringing such matters to a conclusion without any claims been brought against employers and we regularly advise employers regarding the application of the law of unfair dismissal and disability discrimination in order to avoid disability discrimination and unfair dismissal claims.
