Course Description

When employees don’t play fair with your organization’s absentee policy and take an unplanned or excessive time off, it causes problems — and you need solutions!

If employee absence is handled incorrectly, it can lead to charges of discrimination, harassment or favoritism. And that not only causes poor morale among employees; it can even leave your organization vulnerable to legal penalties.

This webinar will teach you how to create or update your attendance policy which complies with legal standards and which can be flexible enough to meet the demands of different departments or positions.

The program will also address federal and state laws that may be implicated in dealing with attendance issues such as the FMLA and ADA.
