SPOTLIGHT on solving absence problems
Gemma’s level of ad hoc short-term absence has reached unacceptable levels.
Jamie is still in his probationary period but has had three one-day absences as a result of his disability.
Peter’s absences for childcare reasons are starting to cause some frustration.
Dan is currently signed off work with work-related stress.
Brian has been off for four months whilst receiving treatment for cancer and is unlikely to be able to return to work any time soon.
No doubt some of these scenarios resonate with you and there may have been times when you have (understandably) been unsure of how to balance up fairness to the employee with the needs of the business. At the spotlight session you’ll be guided through the process to follow in each situation to ensure effective and fair management of the absence problem with minimal risk.
