The employment contract, at its core, is an exchange of work for compensation. So at a very basic level, employers are entitled to expect regular ongoing attendance from their employees. Yet poor attendance – and high absenteeism – is one of the most common and difficult employment problems an employer must manage, and it can be exacerbated when summer’s here, the sun’s out and the water’s cold.

For 10 of the top employers’ attendance – and absenteeism – management problems, and some tips to help employers deal with them, read McInnes Cooper’s Legal Update: 10 of the Top Employers’ Attendance Management Problems.
