When does a mental health condition become a disability? Managing mental health in the workplace

Wednesday 17 March, 9:30am - 10:00am

Creating a culture of positive mental health and wellbeing for employees is high on the agenda for businesses.

But with the third lockdown, working from home and homeschooling adding to the stresses of life, more people are suffering from poor mental health, resulting in long term sick leave. How can employers remain sympathetic, while still operating a successful business and steering clear of any claims for disability discrimination?

We are delighted to have guest speaker Rachel Cutler, business psychology consultant, psychotherapist and executive coach joining us to discuss the benefits of incorporating mental health support in the workplace; and Matt McDonald – partner in our employment team – will cover the employment law considerations.

We will cover:

Recognising mental health issues in the workplace
What employers can do
Managing long term sickness
Avoiding claims
Questions

This is a live event and there will be an opportunity for questions and answers on the day; if you wish, you may also forward your questions in advance to events@shma.co.uk.

Who should attend

HR directors and professionals, business owners and senior managers with responsibility for people management.
