Long term absence
Employees being off sick for extended periods can be a bitter blow to any business. For the employee, the longer they are off work, the less likely it is for them to ever return to work. It has been found that half of all workers off sick for 6 months will never return to work and those off sick for a year only have a 25% chance of ever returning to work. Many people with serious health conditions including cancer, heart or lung problems, depression and others can successfully return to work even during treatment. We are here to assess and advise when this may be possible and how you can make it happen.
