Frequent / Intermittent Absence
Absence Management Procedure - Frequent/Intermittent Absence
This formal procedure should be used if a manager has concerns about an employee's level of frequent intermittent absence. The University recommends that it is used when an employee has been absent for
- three or more absences in a three month period
- frequent/intermittent absences amounting to ten days in a rolling year
The emphasis should be on counselling and support and seeking agreement on targets to improve attendance. However the employee must be warned that if attendance does not improve then the employee's continued employment is at risk.
