Business Owners Breakfast - Managing Employees with Mental Health Issues

9th May 2019

Healthy people are happier, more engaged and more productive.

Employers across the UK are acting now to support the wellbeing of their people and create mentally healthy businesses. Stress, anxiety and depression are the biggest cause of sickness absence in our society. Mental ill health is responsible for 91 million working days lost every year. According to the Centre for Mental Health, simple steps to improve the management of mental health in the workplace will allow employers to save 30% or more of these costs at least £10 billion a year. Our Business Owners Breakfast will be presented by Rotherham and Barnsley Mind and Bhayani HR & Employment Law. Come and join us to learn about the practical steps you can put in place to reduce sickness absence and the impact on your business. Jay Bhayani, specialist employment solicitor will give you tips on managing employees with poor mental health, dealing with performance and sickness absence and as a last resort, how you deal with dismissing an employee. Please RSVP to Rebecca Pearce at to book your place
