Employers and Manufacturers Association (EMA) Northern - Taking Charge of Absenteeism

Taking Charge of Absenteeism

JUST BECAUSE THEY’RE ENTITLED DOESN’T MEAN IT WORKS FOR YOUR BUSINESS.
We all know the familiar sound of the late night phone ringing with staff calling in sick or with some emergency and with the same old excuses. Now, there’s starting to be a pattern.


With winter on the horizon, this toolkit will help you tackle all forms of absenteeism in your business. Letting staff take advantage of the system is wearing out your patience and your bottom-line. Our experts will discuss legal precedent, your obligations & the legal tests and standards around absenteeism and abandonment.

Our experts will discuss legal precedent, your obligations and the legal tests and standards around absenteeism and abandonment

Join us and become legally confident as we cover:

  • Short vs long term – mitigating the risks and the key signs you’re in for the long haul;
  • How to manage authorised leave – it may be in the agreement, but there is a line;
  • Where to from here? Key tests, legal precedents and your obligations; and
  • To transfer, suspend or let go? Clauses and policies that keep you safe.

Absenteeism is a growing concern across a range of industries, so get it sorted, especially before the winter blues set in. Your business can’t operate at full productivity when you’ve got people missing-in-action.
