Sickness, Absence and Leave – Tips and tricks to avoid headaches

It is inevitable that team members will be absent from time to time due to illness and employees are entitled to a variety of other types of leave including annual, maternity, paternity and time off for dependants. It’s not always easy for practice owners and managers to balance the needs of the business with a request for non-mandatory leave and sometimes it is hard to tell which team members are being completely genuine. Therefore, it is critical that leaders are fair and consistent, following procedures that are clearly laid out and understood by all.
