Attendance Management

This topic will help you to manage attendance at work effectively and lawfully. It sets out the legal requirements, best practice and some useful hints and tips. It draws your attention to some of the common pitfalls and guides you past them.

Getting it wrong can mean that you end up in court. For example, if you fail to follow the correct procedure, the employee can complain that he has been unfairly dismissed to the tribunal. There may also be disability discrimination implications.


Your organisation may have its own policies that relate to this topic. You should always check these policies before taking any action that could carry personal or organisational liabilities, and seek qualified advice if there is an apparent conflict between your organisation’s policies and the content of this topic.
