One of the most challenging workplace issues for any employer – large or small, is how to handle a member of staff who is on long term sick leave or has an illness which affects their work.
Get the process wrong and you risk unsettling your workers or facing a claim for unfair dismissal. If the worker has a disability, you are in danger of a discrimination claim under the Equality Act. The average Tribunal award is £32,000.
No employer – whatever their size can escape liability.
