Solicitors in Llanbedrgoch


Dealing with excessive absenteeism as an employer

As an employer there are a number of things you will have to deal with from employees from time to time. Workplace accidents, debates and arguments in the workplace and so on are fairly common, and will require you to step in to solve the problem. Another thing which requires you to step in eventually is excessive absenteeism, when an employee takes too much time off work for reasons which are not to do with the company.

If an employee is claiming compensation through solicitors in Llanbedrgoch

An employee who has been injured due to an accident at work may be taking a lot of time off during their recovery period. Similarly, an employer who is claiming compensation back from you through solicitors in Llanbedrgoch is likely to take time off during this period. You should speak to your employee about the terms of their claim and let them know that you do expect them to come into work.

If an employee has a medical certificate

There is actually very little you can do to discipline an employee who is taking a lot of time off work but has a medical certificate that says that they are unable to work. All you can do in this case is work with the employee to see what can be done to get them back to work, or to allow them to work from home or on reduced hours. If they simply cannot do the job anymore, then you may be able to let them go, but will need to look into the laws surrounding this.

If an employee has no excuse for their absences

An employee who is simply not showing up to work one or more times each week, and has either flimsy excuses or no excuse at all should be given a warning and have it made clear how many warning they will get, and what constitutes an unacceptable absence. Start demanding medical certificates for time off and ensure that they are aware that their job is on the line.

How to let an employee go

Keep a record of all absences which are unexplained or have excuses which you are not happy with, over a period of weeks or months. You can then show these to your employee when you have to let them go, so that they can see your reasons. Put all of this into writing, as a more formal way of firing your employee, should the situation not improve.
