Sick Leave Certification
Almost every employee will take sick leave at some point during their time with a company. This means that every business owner must be aware of the laws governing how and when workers can take sick leave, how much sick pay they can receive and how they should be welcomed back to work.

In this course, you will learn how to handle both long and short-term sick leave and how to ensure employees are treated fairly when they take time off due to injury and illness.

You Will Learn:
The circumstances in which a worker is entitled to sick leave and Statutory Sick Pay (SSP), and how much SSP they can receive
How self-certification and “fit notes” work and how to deal with long-term sick leave
How to make reasonable adjustments for an employee who is returning to work following illness or injury, and how to welcome them back.
How to comply with employment law when dismissing someone on grounds of illness or injury
What to do if you suspect that an employee is fabricating illness or injury
