“World of Work: Absenteeism in the workplace” by John Maytham, quotes Johannesburg lawyer, Neil Searle, in an article about understanding workplace absenteeism.

Searle, a partner at law firm Fasken Martineau, says employers need to have detailed policies in place that address the consequences of absenteeism.

“Employers must set out specific rules and procedures that must be followed in cases of absenteeism.

They cannot take employees to task if there are no guidelines, Searle explains.”
