Corporate Adviser - One in three employers do not provide long-term sick benefits

One third of employers don’t have financial support in place for employees on long-term sick leave.

The research by Group Risk Development (Grid) found 32 per cent of employers don’t have a support plan in place for staff who are absent for more than six months owing to ill health, disability or injury.

The research suggests that half of these employers claim they can’t afford to provide this financial support and a third do not believe it is their responsibility.

A total of 15 per cent of employers said they fund financial support themselves rather than via a group risk policy.

Grid also surveyed employees, and found a quarter of them did not know whether their employer offers this financial support.
