We have a member of staff who is currently a sessional worker (only employed for odd hours). In the past he has had significant mental health issues. However we want to support him back into work by offering him a permanent job. The only trouble is, our sick policy is quite generous (for a VERY small voluntary sector organisation) and if he were to go off sick for a long period, we would be financially damaged.
He is willing to forego the usual sick policy entitlements, but we are not sure how we would stand legally if we set up a different policy for him?
any ideas anyone???!!!
