At Queen's, the Health and Wellbeing of our staff is a top priority. From time to time, employees will be unable to work due to sickness, and when that happens, we want to ensure you feel supported when you are unwell, and also help you to return to work as soon as you are able to do so.
Our Sickness Absence Procedure provides a consistent, fair and effective way for managing these absences from work, covering areas such as: notifiying your manager when sick, return to work, monitoring absence and absence thresholds; as well as action and support available to employees and managers.
It is important that all staff follow the correct procedure in order to notify your manager of any absence due to sickness and complete the appropriate forms. You should also keep in regular contact throughout any absence period and meet with your manager once you do return to the workplace, to review the absence and determine any next steps or additional support that is required.
Queen's employees can follow the link below for further information and additional support on Managing Sickness Absence.
