Absence Management

Absence management is an employer’s approach — via policies, procedures or programs — to reduce employee absenteeism, avoid workforce disruption and maximize employee productivity. It involves striking a balance between supporting employees who miss work due to illness, injury or unforeseen circumstances and disciplining employees whose absences are questionable or excessive.
