Employee Absence Management with Continental Message Solutions

Managing employee absences is critical to making sure a business is able to operate efficiently each and every day. Workplaces with lower rates of absences tend to be more productive and have higher employee morale, and covering for missing employees successfully helps ensure that during those absences there are minimal setbacks.

Absence of some type is often unavoidable, and when it does happen, it helps to have 24 hour phone service that can accurately collect and analyze these absences in a fair and detailed way. If you are in need of an absentee management service, call Continental Message Solutions today at 1-800-369-8908.

Why an Absentee Management Service

In the event of illness, injury, or some other personal emergency, there will need to be a way to successfully monitor and manage these missing days. Absence management is the practice of collecting and managing data on excessive or unreasonable absences so that the company can prepare for and discipline employees that take frequent unnecessary days off, while supporting those that only take absences for unavoidable reasons.

In addition to contributing to a better business environment, tracking and encouraging the improvement of absence rates contributes to regulatory compliance. Federal regulations like the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act (ADAAA) require businesses to report absences in order to ensure a fair and healthy employment experience for employees.

How Can Absence Management Benefit A Business?

Even when employers are familiar with federal and state regulations and have the best of intentions for their employees, sometimes the rules can be difficult to understand. If employers mismanage their employees’ absences, incorrectly apply regulations, or don’t have the resources to develop an effective and reasonable attendance policy, they risk serious consequences from fines or lawsuits.
