  • How do I decide if adjustments are necessary and which adjustments are reasonable?
  • Where is the best place to go for a medical report?
  • If an employee has a disability:
    • Are they entitled to more time off sick before we start our absence management procedures?
    • Are they entitled to a longer period of company sick pay?
  • Can I dismiss an employee who repeatedly fails to follow procedures for reporting absence?
  • Can I go ahead with a formal absence management meeting even if the employee says they are too unwell to attend?
  • How do I deal with combined disciplinary issues (e.g. failing to report absences) and health issues (lots of sickness absence)?
  • What if they raise a grievance claiming their sickness has been caused by their employer’s actions?
  • Notice pay – full pay or SSP?
  • Pregnancy-related sickness absence – do we have to pay full pay?
