Sickness Absence Policy and Procedure #3
Services will always have employees who are sick. This policy makes it clear what their obligations are as well as protecting individuals from contagious diseases etc. Services should always be conscious of health conditions of their employees and take appropriate action to investigate this and explore ways of getting individuals back to work. The policy has been updated in light of the self-isolation rules being reduced from 14 to 10 days; this includes when quarantining after arriving back in the UK. References have also been updated to ensure they remain current.
