WHY ATTENDANCE AT WORK MATTERS
Regular work attendance is an essential job function, and being absent in the workplace costs employers significantly.
Most employees must be present at their job-site on a regularly scheduled basis to do their jobs. However, there are many legitimate reasons why employees cannot be at work every day.
Employers should have a work policy that addresses all the issues of attendance, including lateness, sickness, personal business, family and medical leave, and disability concerns.
An important part of an attendance policy is setting criteria for when excessive absence requires disciplinary action and ensuring that the policy is communicated to employees.
Solutions for improving workplace attendance include compressed workweeks, flextime, job sharing, rewards, and constructive discipline.
