HRreview - ONE IN FOUR EMPLOYERS FAILING TO SUPPORT LONG-TERM ABSENT STAFF

According to new research by GRiD, the industry body for the group risk protection sector, a quarter of employers are not financially supporting staff when they are long-term absent from work.

A new study finds that around one in four employers do not support staff who are off sick from work for an extended period of time.

Long-term absences are normally classed as a period of continuous absence which lasts for longer than four weeks.

When asked why they are failing to do so, close to three in five businesses (59 per cent) stated they cannot afford to provide support for employees.

However, the research warns that questions surrounding entitlement to financial support will come up earlier than previously.
