Employment: Sickness Absence
House of Lords
Lord Freud (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Welfare Reform), Work and Pensions; Conservative)
The Department for Work and Pensions will be leading on the Government's response to the independent review into sickness absence, with input from other government departments and the devolved Administrations. These are complex issues and we will need to take time to consider the recommendations fully; the response will be published later this year.
