Before Managing Absence

There are a number of things to think about before starting an absence management process. Is the employee aware of your absence management procedures and what is expected of them? Does your policy contain absence thresholds? Is the absence genuine or should it be dealt with as a misconduct issue? Remember too that it is important to keep in contact with absent employees to discuss their prognosis and to keep them in touch with the workplace.
