Unless effectively managed, employee absenteeism can result in lost productivity, decreased employee morale and detract from an organization’s ability to achieve its objectives.
This course will provide employers with the tools needed to identify and address the most challenging issues related to attendance management regardless of whether an employee’s absenteeism is ongoing or sporadic, including:
- Assessing whether absenteeism is culpable or non-culpable or a mix of both and the different approaches arising as a result;
- Identifying the elements of a successful attendance management program;
- Weighing employees’ privacy rights with the employer’s entitlement to sufficient information to address attendance issues and its duty to accommodate: determining when, what and how much medical information can be requested from employees;
- Responding effectively to various challenging scenarios, including sick leave fraud or situations where chronic illnesses and human rights considerations exist, while minimizing the organization’s legal risks.
