Whether excused or unexcused, employee absences can negatively impact an employer’s ability to meet its operational needs and effectively manage the workforce.
The problem faced by employers is that many absences are protected by law, including paid sick time, family and medical leave, pregnancy leave, domestic violence leave, work injury related absences, and leave that is granted as an accommodation.
The question is… how do employers manage the workforce, meet scheduling needs, implement discipline for unexcused absences, and comply with the law?
