ACAS published an article on their website that states "It’s a myth that employees can’t be disciplined if they are off sick or don’t show. Their absence may be because of a genuine illness or perhaps a plain refusal to face up to the issue. Either way the wheels of disciplinary justice doesn’t just grind to a halt if the employee isn’t there. But employers will need to consider the facts carefully and come to a reasonable decision on how to proceed ? remembering that disciplinary procedures even in the absence of the employee still need to conform to the ACAS Code of Practice on Discipline and Grievance."
