Clarifying roles in the absence management process


Last Published  01 August 2012

It is essential that the key stakeholders in the organisation have clarity in the aspects of the absence management policy for which they are responsible in order to ensure that the policy is followed clearly and consistently. There are both procedural (eg ensuring the absence policy is adhered to) and practical (eg who is responsible for absence recording) aspects to the absence management process. There will also be occasions when groups of stakeholders have to work together for the benefit of the organisation and to ensure that the absence management policy is followed.

Tool aim
  • To provide clarification of the roles in the absence management process.
