When an employee is absent from work due to illness or injury, there’s a lot for employers to think about, for example redistributing workloads, contacting customers and so on. Our teams know this, and are on hand to ensure the claims process is as easy as possible so you can focus on managing your business and not the claim. Often, with support from our specialists and expert partners, we can prevent an employee’s absence becoming a claim.
