Sickness and incapacity policy and procedures


A sickness policy to support workers who experience illness, designed to find solutions that suit all, and for financial worries not to be an added burden to staff off sick. The policy includes an incapacity procedure, outlines how the organisation will deal with prolonged absence, repeated short-term absences and/or poor or partial performance of duties on the part of a staff member due to illness, injury or other medical condition, and aims to ensure they feel supported and fairly treated throughout.
