Long Term Absence Benefit Schemes Guidelines

1.1 The purpose of these Guidelines is to set out the provisions pertaining to the longterm
absence benefit schemes that apply in the HSE. These schemes are the injury
grant scheme, the serious physical assault scheme and pension rate of pay.

1.2 These Guidelines also set out the procedures that should be adhered to when
managing the implementation of schemes. The purpose of these procedures is to
ensure consistent management of the long term absence benefit schemes, together
with providing clarity on the roles and responsibilities of all parties.

1.3 These Guidelines should be read in conjunction with the HSE’s Managing Attendance
Policy and Procedure, the Rehabilitation of Employees Back to Work after Illness or
Injury Policy and any other relevant HR policies and procedures.

1.4 The granting of pay under the various long term absence benefit schemes is subject to
full compliance with the provisions and conditions of the procedures as set out in
these Guidelines. Failure to comply with any of these provisions may result in pay
being withheld.
