Sick day payments cost UK businesses nine billion pounds a year and while the odd ‘sickie’ may be tolerated, there are more and more reports of employees using fake illness as an excuse to shamelessly take money from their companies. 

Outline Productions is looking to speak to companies that have been affected by fraudulent sick claims as part of a documentary on the effects of these claims on small to medium size businesses.

Has your company been affected by a fake sick claim?

Did this seriously harm your business?

How did you handle it?

Do you feel that enough was done to protect the company?

Has this had a lasting negative effect on your work force?

If you or your current/past business has been affected by this please let Outline Productions know by contacting Andy on 0207 4277621 or email
