As an Employer you have a duty of care toward your Employees whilst they are off work due to sickness/absence, this does mean that you should assist in the facilitation of their return to the workplace, to this you may wish or be able to make reasonable adjustment (where practicably possible).

Employers are not duty bound to do so but should try to accommodate where they can do.
