Managing Absenteeism, Accommodation & Leave Issues
As evidenced by the range of topics covered in AAIM’s Employment Law Series, employment and labor laws touch every aspect of your organization and it can be difficult to stay on top of every potential area of concern. In this course of the Employment Law Series, the following topics will be discussed:
Organizations would like employees to show up every day to perform the job they were hired for. However, they realize that it is not always something they can expect or insist on. Injuries, illnesses, family commitments, religious practices, military service, incidents of domestic violence – there are many reasons why an employee may be unable to be at work or to perform every aspect of their job. Carefully setting guidelines for absenteeism, job accommodations and leaves of absence is important for educating your managers and employees about your expectations and to prevent abuse.
