This Toolkit is aimed at helping small social sector organisations to:

  • Understand and meet minimum legislative requirements in managing sickness absence
  • Treat all employees fairly, in line with equality of opportunity, the principles of diversity and inclusion and with transparency and accountability
  • Measure sickness absence, understand its causes in the organisation and identify any actions that can be taken to reduce it
  • Develop (or review, update) and implement sickness absence rules or a policy and the systems and practices to enable managers to do this well
  • Understand the training required for managers who are implementing sickness absence rules or policy
  • Retain appropriate personal data and records relating to sickness absence
  • Maintain the minimum possible cost and administrative burden balanced against the direct and indirect financial costs of failing to manage sickness absence well.
