Over 10 million fit notes are issued every year stating that people are not fit for work. A recent CIPD report revealed the highest rate of employee sickness absence for over a decade. The rate of sickness absence presents a significant challenge for employers and the Government has made various proposals to reform the fit note system and reduce sick leave.

You are invited to join our next employment club webinar on Tuesday 18 June at 10am, when our expert speakers will explain the legal requirements around sickness absence, ensuring you are up to date with current best practice. They will also look at proposed changes in this area.

In the second part of the webinar, a member of our employment team will provide a general employment law update, covering important recent cases and what's in the pipeline.
