Letter to Employee on Sick Leave Asking to Visit Them at Home

EMP.SCG.14

This Letter to Employee on Sick Leave Asking to Visit Them at Home should be used to seek permission for a home visit from an employee on long-term sick leave.  

Any employer making a home visit to an employee on long-term sick leave must be sensitive to the employee’s health needs, for example, by keeping the visit short and allowing the employee to take frequent breaks. The letter asks the employee to indicate in advance if there is anything that the employer can do to make the home visit more comfortable for the employee. The employer has a duty to make any reasonable adjustments that may be needed for the purposes of the home visit.

Home visits are useful in managing long-term sickness absence, but the employer must be careful in the treatment of the employee in order to avoid potential disability discrimination or unfair dismissal claims. The purpose of the home visit should be to help the employee, for instance as a first step towards a return to work.
