Missing in Action – How to Manage absent Employees



Employees are taking 8.93 days sick and carers leave each per year, according to a new survey — with illness and family responsibilities being the primary reasons. The cost of absenteeism to respondents’ businesses was $2741 per employee per annum. Personal leave is an entitlement under the National Employment Standards (NES) for all employees under the national system. Personal leave is for employees who are unable to work due to illness or injury (“sick leave”) or due to the need to care for an immediate family or household member who is ill or injured (“carer’s leave”). The personal leave provisions of the NES should be read in conjunction with any personal leave provisions in an applicable Award or contract of employment where they are more beneficial than the provisions of the NES.
