Attendance at Work Policies and Procedures

This Western Trust Policy outlines how absence due to sickness will be managed in a fair, consistent and proactive manner by providing clear and effective guidelines on the management and monitoring of absence. This policy provides a Manager’s Toolkit and focuses on supporting Managers and staff during periods of absence by providing a framework for progress.

The Trust recognises that the health and wellbeing of the workforce is critical to the effective functioning of the organisation. The Trust encourages a culture of health and wellbeing within the workforce and equally expects staff to take personal responsibility for their own health and wellbeing. The Trust has a duty to support staff when they become ill and facilitates staff, as far as possible, to safely return to work as early as they can.
