Absence Management

Absence Management

If an employee has been absent more than three times within six months, their employer should intervene to identify and discuss possible underlying causes at a sickness absence meeting.

Unplanned sickness or planned leave, as well as long and short-term staff absence, instantly impacts your bottom line. Without clear and firm management, staff will continue to deviate from the rules set in place, sending out a message to the rest of your workforce that this is acceptable behaviour. However, employers need to receive up-to-date advice to comply with employment law and best practice guidelines.
