Managing Employee Absences

Absence management can be a huge concern for businesses and we understand that long term or persistent short term staff absences can become a real problem for employers.

Gorvins’ Approach to Absence Management for Employers

Whether you have concerns about the frequency or duration of the absence of an employee, have doubts about disciplining a staff member who hasn’t followed the correct reporting procedure or are questioning an employee’s ability to carry out their role in the long-term, the employment law team at Gorvins can help.

One of the most important parts of dealing with any kind of absence is adopting the right procedure and Gorvins approach is to provide robust advice on how to deal with these issues properly, taking into account the employee’s circumstances.  We can provide you with the appropriate letters to send to the employee, their GP or other medical experts where necessary.

To combat absenteeism before it becomes an issue, we can draft appropriate policies for staff handbooks which, combined with clear, expert advice can help to prevent any potential claims.
