Employee on long-term sick leave?
Medical incapacity is when an employee can no longer do their job due to illness or injury, and the employer cannot reasonably keep the job open while they recover. Most employment agreements provide for termination of employment in the event of medical incapacity. However, it's essential that you fully understand the medical situation and explore alternatives before considering termination.
