Absence: Return to Work Meetings

There is no statutory requirement to hold return to work meetings but they can be very useful. You can decide whether to hold a return to work meeting for every absence, or only to hold them in cases of longer absence (e.g. a week or more). Any procedure should be applied consistently so that employees don’t feel ‘singled out’ or allege that they have been treated less favourably.
