Absence is a major frustration for employers of all sizes and sectors and yes, people become unwell. It happens. But managing attendance is not about punishing people for
being ill.

It’s about being proactive in addressing attendance issues head on and setting up a framework of expectations that enable employees to understand what their employer
expects of them in terms of attendance and the implications of not achieving those standards.

This workshop covers attendance management, both frequent short term and long-term absences linking into a potentially fair dismissal for both conduct and capability.

We explore the challenges of ‘stress’ being a factor in some cases, as well as giving you practical tools to use to effectively manage attendance in the workplace.

This course is CPD certified.
