Persistent absence due to illness and/or factors beyond the employee’s control

This course forms part of the Managing Absenteeism in the Workplace course. We would recommend that you do the full course as there are links between the other absenteeism modules. But if you are very short of time, just want to focus on one or two specific topics, or want to try a ‘taster’ before committing to the full course then you can feel free to purchase individual courses.

Other Absenteeism courses include:
