Absence management


Employee absence is a significant cost for many organisations, yet research suggests that only a third of employers monitor that cost. There will always be times when staff become unwell and unable to attend work. We aim to minimise the negative effects that can lead to, cause and sustain absence or prevent an employee from returning to work.


We can help with absence management including:

  • investigating management referrals regarding sickness absence
  • advising on phased return to work programmes
  • advice on workstation assessment and work modifications
  • advice on counselling
  • advice on re-deployment and ill-health retirement

For our CUH and West Suffolk staff we follow The CUH Managing Employee Attendance Procedure to ensure that every effort is made to enable employees to provide good attendance levels where possible. For the full process click to download the: Managing Employee Attendance Procedure.
