How to Manage Long Term Sickness

Drs note

In a sector where education is knowledge do you feel safe in the knowledge that you know how to deal with long term sickness? Having a member of the team off work on long-term sick, be it stress related, regular occurring absence or a terminal illness can be difficult to manage, are you handling the situation within the law? 

The average compensation awarded at a tribunal for a disability discrimination claim is £15,059. Can you afford to get it wrong?
