Sickness absence policy 2-6 weeks

The actions to be taken by employees and employers in a case of sickness absence are determined by law. In the main, the actions to be taken are different for sickness absence expected to be prolonged than sickness absence expected to be for a short term only. The UT has accordingly drafted two sickness absence protocols, one for prolonged sickness absence and one for short-term sickness absence. Both protocols can be retrieved from this website. After two weeks of absence, the staff member and their manager consult on the expected time before the staff member can return to work and the protocol to apply.

ABSENCE PROTOCOL-2-6 WEEKS

The sickness absence protocols for an absence of less than 2 or more than 6 weeks can be retrieved from the appropriate folders.
