  • Absenteeism

    Not being present at work for a prolonged period of time without warning or explanation. There are many reasons why an employee might be absent from work and it is the employer’s job to find out why and offer a solution. It could be a work-related issue such as bullying, harassment or stressful working conditions, or a deeper underlying problem outside of the workplace.

    If an absent employee is dismissed, the employer could be investigated by the Employment Relations Authority and they will need to prove they made an effort to contact the employee.
