I have a member of staff with a history of depression problems. At the moment, he comes into work as he needs the routine, then does very little, stating that he can’t cope. WE have spoken to him about going part time / getting signed off sick / reducing his role to one of less responsibility however as these all involve less pay he has been incredibly reluctant to do this as he needs the money.
I have referred him to occupational health which state that he is fit to work, but clearly handling him is difficult. We have significantly reduced his duties already which is causing significant operational problems, and it is very demotivating to other staff to see him sat in the staff room for hours on end doing nothing, but still being paid.

Does any one have any ideas on where to go from here?
