21 November, 2013
Submitted: 18 May, 2015
Please describe how you have supported staff with chronic conditions or those with unpaid caring responsibilities over the last year. There is a 2000-character limit when completing this section
The principles set out in the chronic conditions guide are embedded within the Government Legal Department’s (GLD) HR policies and procedures. This includes a range of guidance to support employees in returning to work as soon as possible including managers keeping in touch with staff during periods of prolonged absence. Support continues to be offered via the HR Advisory Team, Occupational Health Service and the Employee Assistance Programme (for both individuals and managers).
GLD procedures already include providing managers with support in making reasonable work and workplace adjustments to support those returning to work after a period of sickness, or those suffering from chronic conditions. These include ergonomic adjustments, flexible working practices and role alterations.
