This is a letter that can be used by an employer to invite an employee to a sickness absence meeting upon the employee's imminent return from sick leave. The letter is particularly useful where the employer wishes to address the following matters:

  • The reason(s) for the employee's absence
  • Where the absence is a long-term one, when the employee is likely to return to work
  • Where the absence is a short-term but intermittent absence, when the employee is likely to improve their attendance patterns at work.

This document takes into consideration important scenarios such as whether the employee submitted medical evidence before going on sick leave, whether the employee has a disability which the employer has to make provisions for, whether the employee's return to work will have to be done gradually in stages etc.

The employer will usually have contained in its Sickness Absence Policy, how it will usually conduct such sickness absence meetings.

This document can be used by employers with organisations of varying sizes (small, medium or large). The document has been tailored for use in the jurisdictions of England and Wales, and Scotland.


How to use this document

The document is tailored to the use of a corporate employer or a sole trader. The details of the employer and the employee should be entered accurately. The address of the employer should be its place of business, while the address of the employee should be the employee's residential address which the employer has on file.

Once the document has been filled satisfactorily, it can be simply posted to the employee and, if the employer chooses, also sent to the employee by email.
