Medical and Welfare issues can be tricky to tackle in the workplace, especially when they brush into disabilities and the potential for disability discrimination. This topic can also cover everything from AWOL/ghosting to managing the long-term illness or injury of an Employee and analysing their new health and safety risks within the workplace. You may also have to deal with the thorny topic of requests for medical records in order to assess capability for the job role, accurately assess their health and safety needs, or make adjustments in order to facilitate their work.
Our toolkit contains multiple template documents that can help you navigate the waters of medical and welfare needs. This includes correspondence to chase an Employee who has gone AWOL, obtain consent to request medical records, Occupational Health referrals and reports, managing a sickness-related disciplinary, and more.
