Sickness is unfortunately an unavoidable part of every business, and whilst steps can be taken to encourage a healthy lifestyle in your employees and making provisions for a healthy working environment, time off from sickness can still occur. With statutory sick pay starting after just a few days of a sickness related absence from work, many companies use group income protection to help their employees in times of long term sickness absence by paying a proportion of salary until the employee returns to work or retires.
BDHL offers Group Income Protection in Kent and around the country, with policies that save your employees from the worry that can come from living what is often an inadequate statutory sick pay, and will pay a percentage of your employees basic annual salary when certain requirements are met. This policy can be customised to meet your needs and if required an employer can choose to cover national insurance and pension contributions on the company’s behalf either for a defined period or until retirement.
Returning to work after a prolonged period of absence due to sickness can be quite a daunting process, and it can take some employees some time to get back into the swing of things, or in more serious cases of absence time to get over the psychological trauma felt during their absence. As part of our Group Income Protection policy we can provide your employees with additional benefits such as a return to work program that can include stress counselling help lines. In instances where specific arrangements need to be made in order to accommodate an employee’s return to work assistance can be made available to you to help with making alterations to your office that allow your employees to return to work.
