A HR Solutions Webinar: Minimising Risk – Absence Management
Balancing both compliance with employment law, and effective absence management at work can be a minefield for managers. The range of HR hurdles which staff absence can cause is broad, to say the least; from awareness of AWOL (absence without leave) employee rights to tackling persistent short-term absence, and delicate long-term sickness cases. Unfortunately, there is not a one size fits all approach to managing absence cases. In fact, the most appropriate approach to handle each of them can vary significantly.
Employment absence policies are a starting point, but practical absence management is where tribunal cases are lost and won. In this webinar, we’ll give you quick and actionable HR tips as well as some absence management strategies, which will reduce risk and support your business.
