Disability and Absenteeism Management

Managing workplace absenteeism is one of the most difficult human resources issues facing employers today. Employers who fail to properly manage absenteeism expose their organization to a myriad of liabilities, including union grievances, complaints of human rights violations, and even regulatory investigation and/or prosecution.
