Reporting & recording sickness

Accurate absence records provide the foundation for the University to manage absence from work more effectively. Monitoring absence enables us to measure a whole range of risks that are associated with staff health, well-being and morale.

We recognise that the cause of your absence may be something out of your control and encourage managers to remain open minded until the root cause of the absence is properly understood. Until the cause is correctly identified, it will not be possible to identify an appropriate course of action to remedy it.

Our policies and procedures have been created to enable consistent, fair and effective monitoring and management of absence.

 

***It is the responsibility of staff to record their sickness absence via the MyHR Dashboard. If staff are unable to do this, their line manager must do it on their behalf.***

How do I...?
