Systems should be in place to check on attendance, annual leave and sick leave. All of these systems should be monitored by the personnel department and, where necessary, used to promote improved performance in these areas.
Continuing poor attendance or abuse of annual leave may result in disciplinary proceedings.
Excessive sick leave may result in referring the employee to the organisation's medical advisor or appropriate health office.
Electronic records management
It is important that records are kept by the personnel department to substantiate any cases that may arise during the employee’s employment or even during retirement.
