Have your say on workplace wellbeing legislation

In a consultation, the Department for Work and Pensions and the Department of Health and Social Care are putting forward a package of measures which encourage early and supportive action by employers for their employees with health conditions.

The data shows that around 300,000 people with a long-term mental health condition fall out of work every year. Government believes that there is a case for employers to do more to support their employees who are managing health conditions, or who are experiencing a period of sickness absence.

In return, the government can provide more help for employers, recognising the differences in employers’ capacity and capability to act.

Have your say. The consultation closes on Monday 7 October and is available online.

Look out for more on employee mental health in the September issue of Care Home Management.
