Virtual event- Managing staff absence in schools

Managing sickness absence is always a key challenge for schools, but particularly at the moment when sickness absence levels are likely to be higher than usual. In this 90-minute interactive session, we explore the topic of absence management including:

  • Practical and legal guidance on the management of sickness absence in the current climate, whether Covid-19 related or not
  • The issues that arise from short and long-term absence
  • Considerations under the Equality Act 2010, including the duty to make reasonable adjustments
  • The steps schools can take to assist employees returning to work
  • Dismissal and its alternatives.

The webinar will include an introduction to the topic from the education team followed by a case study for delegates to consider and discuss in breakout sessions. This event is aimed at business managers, bursars, and HR managers of schools.
