How To Handle Tricky Employee Absenteeism
Problems Webinar - Management / Human
Resources Training Webinar
Employee absenteeism is like a cold — it only
takes one employee taking advantage of your policy for problems to spread
through the entire organization. If you have an issue where someone is
chronically late, excessively absent, or abusing your policy in any way, you
need to nip it in the bud — now! But if employee absence is handled incorrectly,
it can lead to charges of discrimination, harassment, or favoritism. And that
not only causes poor morale among employees, it can even leave your organization
vulnerable to legal penalties!
When employees don’t play fair with your organization’s absentee policy, it
causes problems — and you need solutions!
That’s why we’ve created How to Handle Tricky Employee Absenteeism Problems!
You’ll learn how to create or update your attendance policy so it conforms to
legal standards — and remains flexible enough to meet the demands of different
departments or positions. You’ll discover how to not only recognize, but deal
with patterns of abuse. And you’ll find out what disciplinary steps you can take
even in the most sensitive situations. In one hour, we’ll answer all your
questions — and help you come up with strategies for addressing the most common
employee absenteeism problems!
Make sure your attendance policy fully complies with legal standards such as the
Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), or
workers’ compensation — without leaving you vulnerable to employee abuse! Enroll
