Sickness & Absence

Sickness and staff absence are a fact of life in every business and while most employees must accept both instances as an unavoidable fact of employing staff there are some situations of absence that can’t be left unchecked.

Chronic and persistent absenteeism that inevitably becomes incorporated within the business’ disciplinary procedures is a tricky situation to manage and wherever it is done without reference to employment rights there is always the potential for an unwanted and expensive employment tribunal.

If you find yourself managing a complex situation in your business or feel that you may have been discriminated against on the basis of your employer’s unfair sickness and absence policy then you should speak to BBM. We can advise on all aspects of employment law including matters arising from staff absenteeism.
