Employment Law in 2014: What to Expect - Sickness

Spring 2014 - Sickness

Introduction of a new government funded independent assessment service to assess ill health. The aim is to introduce this in April, but it may be towards the end of 2014. Its remit will include free assessment by occupational health professionals for employees who are off sick for four weeks or more, and advice for employers on how to assist employees who are long term sick to return to work.
