Time: 10.00am – 11.30am

What’s this session about?

Line Managers are usually closest to managing employee issues on the ground and it is therefore essential that they have appropriate support and training in order to this effectively. These expert led sessions will provide delegates with the skills and confidence to deal with the issues they are likely to face in practice. Delegates can attend each session or choose the ones that they feel are the most relevant.

In the third session we will cover how to manage short and long term absence, including:

Short term absence

  • Identifying patterns
  • Reporting and monitoring
  • Informal management
  • How and when to move to the formal stage
  • The formal procedure

Long Term absence

  • When to intervene
  • Occupational health and medical input
  • Disability and reasonable adjustments
  • Maintaining contact
  • Fair process

The sessions will be interactive with relevant case studies and there will be opportunities to ask questions.

Speakers: Sue Meehan Boyes & Kirsty Hunt
