Long Term Absence Forms

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.
