Attendance and absence management

Support with leave, absence, maternity and more

Every employee has a right to time off. Whether it’s for a scheduled holiday, a happy event such as becoming a parent, or a sudden need for compassionate leave. It’s important that employers and their workforce understand their entitlements and responsibilities when it comes to adsence management.

Your employees have rights, but your business does too. Strong, clear and well-communicated policies are essential so that your employees know their entitlements while your business is protected in the event of a dispute or issue.

Our specialist HR consultants can ensure your business is compliant with current employment legislation and the responsibilities employers have around work-life balance, wellbeing and mental health.

Talk to us for expert advice on issues including:

  • Holiday entitlement
  • Pro rata leave arrangements
  • Maternity, paternity and family friendly leave
  • Compassionate leave
  • Employees who care for a family member
  • etc

From time to time, employers will need support in managing a member of the team who are regularly off sick or on unauthorised leave. In such cases, effective absence management is vital – including accurate measurement of the time taken off, the setting of absence targets, identifying any absence triggers and an overall policy for dealing with long and short-term absence.

Whether you need help in putting an effective policy together, or an urgent need to deal with a pressing problem, our qualified, experienced consultants can help navigate potentially difficult issues including:

  • Long term absence
  • Unexpected absence
  • Frequent or long term sickness
  • Absences due to stress
  • Unauthorised absence
  • Back to work interviews
  • Managing a return to work after long-term illness or absence

Clear, well communicated policies on issues such as holidays, sick pay and compassionate leave are also vital, so that employees know their entitlements and your business is protected in the event of a dispute or issue.
