Welcome to Absence Management Week – the second of our themed weeks to celebrate the relaunch of Deminos. We’ve plenty lined up, so we’ll briefly explain what’s going to be in store over social media and by email over the next few days.
Questions of the day
We’ll be addressing some of the issues that can arise when employees are continually absent from work, with expert advice and insight from our HR Director, Louise Atkinson. Unauthorised absence can be a major issue for businesses, so we’ll be looking at how to tackle that particular problem.
- What should you do if you don’t believe an employee is genuinely ill?
- Can an employee work elsewhere while on sick leave?
- Can an employee take annual leave whilst on long term sick?
World Mental Health Day
Tuesday 10th October is World Mental Health Day. This year’s theme is mental health in the workplace, so look out for Dr Nicola Baylis’ top five tips for looking after mental health and reducing stress. We’ll also be putting together a special round-up of all the news and useful content surrounding the day.
Your HR news round-up
Every weekday afternoon we’ll share the best stories relating to human resources and employment law on our blog. Whatever may be happening within the industry, we’ll let you know so you’re kept informed.
What’s out there
As well as rounding up the main HR news stories, we’ll be sharing thoughts and case studies relating to our questions of the day from bloggers and commentators within the world of HR and employment law.
Meet the team
We’re continuing our regular feature, where each Friday we’ll focus on one of the Deminos team so you can meet your HR advisors. Who will it be this time?
That’s all for now!
