According to the Financial Times, 20% of the UK workforce were absent due to either positive COVID-19 test results or self-isolation*, causing huge staff shortages for employers.
With more than half a million pinged by the NHS Test and Trace App**– leading to what’s been termed ‘pingdemic’ – it’s likely your business will be facing increased cases of self-isolation. But did you know, as an employer you could receive a fine of up to £10K for failing to comply with self-isolation rules?
The HR experts of our partner, Citation, have created this free guide summarising how to best manage sickness and absences correctly – from the processes you should follow and fit notes, to managing long-term absences and pay.
The guide covers managing employees who must self-isolate, who has to self-isolate and who is exempt from self-isolation, what processes you should follow for each individual case, conducting return to work interviews, information on SSIP, fit notes, and more.
