Request for Home Visit with a Sick Employee

The letter Requesting a Home Visit with a Sick Employee is to be used where an Employer is facilitating a return to work, to enable this a visit to the Employees home is beneficial in the first instance, this is to gain an understanding into the reasons for their absence/sickness, to establish what support can be offered and the next steps.

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.
