Tales of an HR Services Expert – Day 10: Sickness absence don’ts!

If your employees call in sick there are things that you shouldn’t do. If you are worried about levels of sickness absence, there are ways to solve that.

These things are not the way to go!

  • Make them call you every hour they are sick, to prove that they are still at home
  • Call them every hour trying to get them to come back into work
  • Make them have a medical examination
  • Sack them for “too much sickness”!
