The Sickness Absence Policy and Procedure exists to provide a fair and consistent approach to the management of sickness absence in the work place.

Staff referral form [DOCX]

Staff can be referred for a formal assessment and report on their fitness for work where there is concern that their health is being affected by their work, or where problems are affecting performance or attendance at work.

Advice can also be requested on the management of health problems which have an impact on an individual's safety to undertake aspects of their role.

If you have concerns about health vulnerabilities of staff planning a return to work on College campuses, we have created a COVID referral to support the assessment of individuals who require advice on their fitness to work on site and further information on mitigating their risk in relation to COVID19.
