The Health and Work Service will dramatically affect how you manage absence and ill health in your workforce and is being phased in from late 2014. Employee’s GPs will now be referring them to the service after 4 weeks of absence for an occupational health assessment which will provide you with advice on how to manage them back to work.
BUT, how will this work in practice? How will it interact with the services you already have? Is 4 weeks too late and will the advice be any good, given that consultations with employees will mostly be over the phone by advisers who you have never spoken to and who have never set foot in your business?
To find out more, come to our Free Breakfast Seminar and hear the views of 3 experienced professionals with many years’ experience of absence, health and ill health at work.
- Lindsey Hall, Managing Director and Occupational Health Adviser, Split Dimension Ltd
- David McCrum, Employment Law Solicitor, David McCrum Ltd
- Roy Berrington, Managing Director, Holate Employee Assistance Programme
We look forward to meeting you and sharing our views, plus hearing yours. There is plenty to be applauded in this service but at present, as many questions and answers about how it will be implemented and what it means for you, your employees and your business.
