The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how workplaces respond to sickness and other forms of absence in a variety of ways. This includes how organisations handle long-term absence with the rise of the syndrome called long COVID, which can have a lasting impact on an employee's health and wellbeing. So, how can employers manage long-term absence safely, legally and sensitively in a post-pandemic world? In this webinar, Freeths LLP Senior Associate, Toby Pochron outlines:
- The impact of the pandemic and long COVID on how organisations manage absence
- How to support employees who are absent long-term and help reintroduce them to the workforce effectively
- The legal issues to consider in relation to long-term absence and disability discrimination
