“It can be tough for both employees and employers when someone suffers from mental health problems that affect someone’s ability to carry out their duties and sustain meaningful employment. I have managed and worked on hundreds of job retention cases in adult psychiatric services since 2002′.
‘I have learned and demonstrated that traditional views in medical services where, ‘cure’, or being ‘work ready’ before job retention support can begin do not work well and has led to many people with mental health issues being managed by capability and performance management processes. This all so often ends in a win-lose scenario leading to drawn out legal battles and employment tribunals. . Actually, when employers then lose valued employees and do not have the skills and resources to help manage their employees mental health issues within the workplace, it more often ends in lose- lose scenarios” (Paul Dorrington PTS Founder).
