Managing Absenteeism, Accommodation and Leave Issues

Course Date

This course is not currently scheduled.

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, deaths in the family, religious practices, military service, incidents of domestic violence, parent teacher conferences – 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.

  • Legally Protected Leave, Including Leave Under the FMLA and USERRA
  • Leave as an accommodation for disabling conditions, pregnancy, religious practices and domestic violence victims
