These Guidance Notes for Employers: Return to Work Interviews and Risk Assessments are designed to assist employers with dealing with an employee’s return to work interview and provide a basic overview of what employers should consider when an employee returns to work after a long period of sickness.

The interviews can be useful for both short-term and long-term sickness. It is important to approach these interviews in a constructive manner and the guidance notes provide details on preparing for interviews, conducting the interviews and follow up after the interview. The interviews should also consider any recommendations set down in fit notes and return to work plans. They then go on to a few general points on conducting risk assessments after an employee returns to work.

These guidance notes should be used in conjunction with the Absence and Return to Work Form.
