Disability-related absences are better managed by building early disability reporting practices and disability duration procedures. In doing so, employers effectively manage and reduce absenteeism.

By setting up the following practices, you can improve how absence due to disability is handled:

  • Initial disability reporting: Include facts about an employee’s absence or disability in the claim as soon as possible — it’ll help cut down on the amount of time out of the office and increase the “return-to-work” probability.
  • Disability duration strategy: Guidelines help forecast the length of a disability and create a standardized technique for assessing the usefulness of a return-to-work program. Employers can customize their plans accordingly.

Absence Management can help your business lessen short and long term absences due to sickness. To get rid of additional administration pressure, many companies have outsourced this service. For more information on our services, contact us.
