It is commonly acknowledged that sickness absence is a huge issue for all employers – organising sick pay, arranging cover, reorganising workloads and managing the employee can all eat into your company’s productivity and time, which as a result adds significant costs to UK businesses each year. Most employers however are uncertain on how to handle employee absence, mitigate its impact on their business effectively and avoid the risk of claims.
To help local businesses discover the best ways to manage sickness absences within their teams, Morgan McKinley are working in conjunction with Morrisons Solicitors to offer an insight into this topic.
The guest speakers on the day will be: Joanne Kavanagh, Partner and Head of Employment at Morrisons Solicitors and Emma McLoughlin, a solicitor in the employment team. Both Joanne and Emma regularly advise businesses on how to manage employees who are off sick intermittently and employees on long term sickness absence and will be sharing their expertise with attendees in an informal seminar.
