If your employee has been absent from work for 4 weeks or more, you can use this form to refer them for a supportive, work-focussed assessment.
If you're unsure if an employee is eligible for an assessment, ask an adviser for help.
Fit for Work Scotland is a voluntary service and your employee can withdraw at any time. To gain the most benefit from the service, it is recommended that employees complete the process and share their Return to Work plan with you and their GP.
Although you will receive a reference number for each employee referral, we will be unable to provide any update on progress or status due to confidentiality. Please discuss progress directly with your employee.
Alternatively, you can refer an employee by phoning 0808 281 9288 (Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.00pm).
Closed 26th December, 27th December, 2nd January and 3rd January.
