Workplace Relations Seminar: Dealing with employee injuries, illnesses and absences that are not work-related

Dealing with employee injuries, illnesses and absences that are not work-related



No matter what you do to protect the health and safety of your employees at work, you will still need to deal with employees with illnesses or injuries that are not caused by work.

Employees will still catch colds. They may be injured bungee-jumping, playing golf or even just mowing the lawn. They may need time off because a child is sick, or they may need to work sitting down for two months while they recover from a broken leg.

Whatever happens, and however it is caused, it is important employers understand the workplace rights employees have when they or their family/household members are ill or injured. However, it is equally important that employers take reasonable steps to ensure that such rights are used correctly (and not abused).

In this seminar we will cover:

  • Requesting medical certificates and further information about sick leave
  • Dealing with dubious claims for sick leave
  • Handling claims for carer’s leave, and seeking further information
  • Managing regular or extended absences from the workplace
  • Dealing with illnesses and injuries that may affect an employee’s work or capacity
