It is well known that sickness absence is costly to employers. Ark can add value to your organisations performance by facilitating an early but safe return to work.
An occupational health consultation with your employee will provide an assessment of:
Their current and future health
Their fitness to return to full duties with timescales
Any need for a phased return to work in terms of reduced hours or duties
Any need for workplace adjustments
Their case being covered by the disability provisions of the Equality Act 2010
Their capacity to be able to provide regular and effective service
Refer or discuss early in the employee’s sickness absence so that we can add value.
Leave referring until after the employee’s GP has said that the employee can return to work – weeks may have gone by and we will be able to add very little value.
