What is absence management? 

Absence management is all about having policies and processes in place to handle sickness, leave and other types of employee absence. 

While it might be tempting to take shortcuts, this can leave you open to risks such as tribunal claims and financial penalties.

How we support you with absence management 

We help you do things by the book to protect your business from negative consequences. Our support also means you can solve problems quickly and have your questions answered straight away, whether it’s to do with statutory sick pay, unreasonable amounts of leave, or something else. 

With SafeHR, you can be confident your policies, procedures and decisions are backed up by specialist expertise. We’ve even got an in-house legal team to advise on employment law issues. 

We’ll help you: 

  • Document your process in a sickness absence policy 
  • Comply with UK employment law 
  • Treat everyone fairly and consistently in line with your policy 
  • Track employee absences in your new HR software 

It’s also important that your line managers know how to approach sick leave. We’ll provide detailed absence management guides that talk them through the process step by step.

Statutory sick pay support

You might be wondering whether you need to pay statutory sick pay (SSP), and how to manage this properly. As a small business, covering this cost can feel like a considerable financial burden, but all employers must pay SSP to eligible employees. 

We’ll help you navigate SSP with each of your contracts and policies, answering all of your questions along the way.

Our customers say it best

“SafeHR fills a role in the team we don’t currently have. It provides the handbook with all policies and allows my managers and I to see departments and staff really easily. It’s also straightforward to get any info like sick days, holiday etc., and it makes figuring things out – quick questions that you need answers to – easier.”

“Reliable advice and accessible resources make us feel in safe hands with all our human resources needs.”

The Pleasance Theatre

“At CSS we have multiple types of contracts for different types of staff, so it took a while to get them all correct, but it was great once they were all finalised and the SafeHR consultants were extremely understanding with all the changes we requested.”

Construction Site Services

“The SafeHR experts helped to sort out the confusion and created one set of policies for all employees to use, which took away so much stress. In terms of the HR advice, I’ve had a few situations where I’ve been unsure of the right steps to take and so I’ve run the issue past the consultants first. They always give fantastic advice and reassurance.”

Gittins McDonald

“We have no experts in HR at BMAC, we rely solely on SafeHR to support us in that and there’s never been an issue.”


It helps me to sleep at night knowing all our contracts and policies are compliant. And that if any issues do arise, SafeHR’s expert advisors are on hand to help us deal with them appropriately.”
