Additional Information

Fit for Work is a free, government-led initiative that helps businesses grow through improving their productivity and profitability via effective management of staff sickness absence.

 There are two elements to Fit for Work:

1. Free, expert and impartial work-related health advice via their website and telephone line (0800 032 6235).

2. Referral to an occupational health professional for employees who have been, or who are likely to be, off sick for four weeks or more

 What are the benefits of Fit for Work?

  • Employees return to work sooner so the costs of sickness absence are reduced.
  • Employers get access to free work-related health advice and free occupational health assessments for employees on long-term sickness absence.
  • Employers get a tax exemption on payments of up to £500 (per year, per employee) on medical interventions recommended by Fit for Work.
