Sickness Management

This is a model policy/procedure which reflects legislation, any relevant statutory and non-statutory guidance and best practice. The responsibility for setting policy and procedure resides with the Governing Board/Trust and as such the relevant body must be satisfied that the content of the policy/procedure suits their requirements and must consult their staff/local trade union representatives prior to its formal adoption. In the this context, Education HR does not negotiate and agree its model policies with the Trade Unions/Professional Associations, although they are consulted and their feedback is considered in the development of the documents.
