Managing Employee Absenteeism And Tardiness
2/15/2010


Managing absenteeism and tardiness can be a sticky issue - it is rarely a black and white issue. There are mandatory leave laws that have to be incorporated into your leave policies and some of those can create restrictions on how to administer your leave policies. There are also some restrictions on disciplining employees when they appear to abuse policies. This teleconference will help companies to sort out the do's and don'ts for developing and managing an effective policy. The teleconference will also focus on how to manage the land mines, sort through the valid and invalid 'excuses' employees come up with, and provide ways to improve absentee and tardiness rates through incentive programs.
