Free help to cut sick leave
The Government’s new “Fit For Work scheme” is here at last and the good news is, it’s free.
The scheme is aimed at helping employees to get back to work sooner where they have been or are expected to be off ill for 4 weeks or more. Employers are now able to contact the service for advice or to refer their employee for an assessment. Referrals can also be made by GPs.
The employee has to give their consent but provided they do, a 45 minute health assessment will be carried out by a health professional and a “Return to Work Plan” agreed.
