Communicating with employees about absence

Overview

Last Published  01 August 2012

Employees must be aware of the organisation's absence policy and changes to the policy must be disseminated as they arise. Organisations may also choose to publish absence figures.

The accompanying resources will be particularly useful where line managers have the responsibility for communicating with their employees about absence.
