LRD Booklets

Latest booklet - Sickness absence and sick pay - a guide for trade unions and working people

Employment relations and workplace culture can be enhanced — or damaged — depending on how well sickness absence, disability and worker wellbeing are handled. And if work or poor management is itself causing health problems, that has to be attended to.

Union reps need an understanding of sickness and disability issues, what protections the law has to offer, what the workplace rules are or should be, and any aspects of the job or management that may be contributing to sickness at work.

This new LRD trade union booklet, aimed specifically at trade unions, union reps and the workers they represent, contributes to that by giving a clear understanding of sickness absence and how it should be managed, as well as new information about the aftermath of Covid-19 and its impact on sickness absence in the workplace.

LRD Booklets all issues

The popular LRD Booklets provide invaluable information on a range of trade union and labour movement concerns. Seven to eight booklets are usually produced each year. There are guides to issues that are permanently on the trade union agenda - such as health and safety, state benefits and sick pay - as well as rapid analysis of new developments affecting trade unionists - such as new employment laws and codes.
