Balancing both compliance with employment law, and effective absence management at work can be a minefield for managers. The range of HR hurdles which staff absence can cause is broad, to say the least; from awareness of AWOL (absence without leave) employee rights to tackling persistent short-term absence, and delicate long-term sickness cases. Unfortunately, there is not a one size fits all approach to managing absence cases. In fact, the most appropriate approach to handle each of them can vary significantly.
