Sickness Absence Policy
Appendix F: Flow Chart for Formal Procedures for Managing Sickness Absence
Prior to the formal procedures being triggered, the line manager must provide informal indication to the employee that this may happen, for example during a previous return to work meeting.
If attendance improves during the monitoring period but a further Sickness Absence Meeting is triggered within 6 months of the end of that period, the procedure can restart at the next stage (Stage 3 will be repeated if necessary).
Where appropriate, Statute 18 will apply.
