Proposals to reduce ill health-related job loss

23rd July 2019

The Department of Health and Social Care and the Department for Work and Pensions are seeking views on different ways in which the government and employers can take action to reduce ill health-related job loss.

Disabled people and people with long term health conditions are at greater risk of falling out of work. The proposals aim to support and encourage early action by employers for their employees with long term health conditions, and improve access to quality, cost effective occupational health.

The consultation closes on Monday 7 October 2019.
