The government has announced that the national Fit for Work occupational health (OH) referral service will be closed in March 2018. What help will still be available for employers and is anything else on the cards?
Although the OH referral scheme is going, you’ll still be able to access Fit for Work’s free phone, website and online chat services. They can offer general advice on sickness absence and medical conditions. There are, however, plans to reform the current fit note system and statutory sick pay.
A secure cloud-based managed payroll system that takes care of everything – from data input and processing through to online distribution and digital reporting, as well as payments to employees, HMRC and pension companies.
