Absence & Re-integration

How to lower sickness absence rates in your organisation? And how to prevent extension of the period in which the employer is obliged to continue to pay an employee's salary, as imposed by the Employee Insurance Agency in the event of long-term sickness absence? Organisations with employees will be confronted with illness, absenteeism and occupational disability sooner or later. Your organisation's turnover will be directly affected. Mazars' specialists will advise and support you with regard to various absence monitoring processes. This helps you to keep sickness absence among your employees under control.

How can we help you?

Our specialists will develop a practically implementable absenteeism policy for you, which contains both preventive and curative resources. Maximum attention from the direct manager and waterproof registration in a monitoring system that generates daily overviews are key in that respect.

Does your organisation suffer from high levels and/or frequent sickness absence? We will find out what the cause is and we will offer advice about measures to prevent and reduce this. Are you confronted with long-term sickness absence? We can take over the entire case management process. Among other things, this means we will conduct regular talks with all parties and we will manage the occupational health and safety service. This will prevent extension of the period in which you are obliged to continue to pay an employee's salary for reasons of you failing to comply with the requirements under the Eligibility for Permanent Incapacity Benefit (Restrictions) Act.

Has the Employee Insurance Agency already imposed an extension of the period in which you are obliged to continue to pay an employee's salary? In that case, we recommend sorting out your file as soon as possible. Mazars' specialists will inform you of the requirements to be met by a good file and we offer advice about the follow-up steps. If the matter is dealt with properly, there is a good chance the extension will be reduced. By involving us in this process as early as possible you can minimise the risk of high costs. Because again: prevention is better than cure.
