Taught with real-world cases, this one-day workshop gives you a rigorous, practical way to assess whether time off should be excused or not, avoiding the pitfalls caused by thinking about absences in terms of sick days or leaves. The course will help you navigate a way through the maze of employment standards, human rights laws, and contract or collective agreement provisions that affect attendance management, ensuring you are fair and consistent and that the decisions you make are defensible. Learn how to minimize the need to make your people get doctors’ notes [and how to critically assess such notes when appropriate]. Learn to respond effectively to suspect medical notes [“This employee can’t work shifts” / “This employee needs to be a lift truck driver”].
If you’re tired of feeling victimized by the same few people playing games with sick time, this workshop is a breath of fresh air. There is a special price for persons registering for this program together with Disability Management and Human Rights Made Clear on the following day.
