In an ideal world, there would be 100% attendance and no-one would have any time off due to colds, flu, stomach upsets and bad backs. Unfortunately, life’s just not like that and there are times when as an employer, you have no option but to go down the route of a disciplinary. Clearly, when this happens it can be a difficult time for all parties involved. Having the knowhow to carry out effective return to work discussions to prevent it becoming a disciplinary issue – short term intervention is an excellent prevention of long term absence. Book to attend our half day Absence Management - HR Open Training Course on 20th March.
