Broad guidance reflecting the reality that prolonged sickness absence can negatively impact both business productivity and employees' lives. Accordingly, this best practice advice steers employers through the process of helping ill, injured or disabled people on long-term leave to return as soon possible. An implicit theme is the reality (with citations) that inability to return to work due to illness triggers more health problems and the longer people are absent the less likely they will return.

Provides a practical framework to assist both employer and employee and explores key aspects such as the need to maintain contact, the planning and undertaking of workplace adjustments, availability of professional or other advice and treatment, agreeing and reviewing a 'return to work plan'.
