Short-term absence in the workplace can be a tricky issue to deal with for small business owners, especially where there is a close relationship with employees and less restrictive HR processes. HR Network TV has made a helpful video which covers how best to manage short-term absence especially when such absence becomes persistent and starts to cost the business too much money.
One of the most important foundations for business owners being able to tackle persistent short-term absence is to make sure there is a proper employment agreement in place (you can download our employment contract template which costs just £5.99). Employers who want to come to an agreement with an employee to end the employment relationship voluntarily should consider a settlement agreement (see our settlement agreement template, also instantly downloadable for just £5.99).
