Event Details

Missing in Action: Managing Planned and Unplanned Workplace Absenteeism

Each year, the average full-time employee in Canada is absent from work approximately nine days.  Some absences are for a day or two, while others last considerably longer.  Left unmanaged, absenteeism can significantly and negatively impact the culture, morale and productivity of a workplace. 

 

What are an employer’s legal obligations in connection with workplace absence and what can be done to minimize unplanned time away from work?  

 

Legal Entitlements

    • Protected leaves of absence under the Employment Standards Act, 2000.
    • Human rights considerations when addressing absenteeism.
    • Are there special rules in a unionized environment?

Addressing Absenteeism

    • Culpable vs. non-culpable absences – are they treated differently?
    • Communicating with an absent employee, including obtaining appropriate medical information.
    • When may an employer discipline or terminate for absenteeism?

Tips to Reduce Absenteeism

    • Attendance management policies – what to consider when preparing your own.
    • Changes to schedules and work locations.
    • Attendance awards and other incentives.
