Managing Employee Absences
| Citations Guide for BICSc Members

January is typically the worst month for employee absences and, with 1,189,985 people in the UK testing positive between 28 December and 3 January*, absences are likely to spike as the month goes on if patterns follow similarly to last year.

Are you confident you know how to properly manage a rise in self-isolation and sickness absences?                                  

To help, the experts of BICSc partner, Citation, have put together a FREE guide summarising everything you need to know – from what to do if someone must self-isolate to how to properly manage employees calling in sick.

This free guid covers topics such as:

  • Managing short-term and long-term absences
  • How to carry out the right process for each individual case
  • Conducting return-to-work interviews
  • Understanding Statutory Sick Pay and fit notes.
