Yes, this is a ‘capability’ case i.e. your employee is not capable of fulfilling their contract due to their absence. We would therefore recommend managing this though a capability procedure that we would guide you through. This would result in either the employee returning to work or their employment being terminated (depending on the circumstances).

To speak to a consultant about long term (or short term) sickness, please give us a call.
