We often have employees taking agreed extended leave to visit family abroad, usually of a period of 4 weeks or more.
We are finding more and more that employees go AWOL or sick towards the end of their extended unpaid leave.
Our current policy and extended leave agreement forms are quite out of date and I am seeking to update these. Can anybody offer me any advice or examples of policies on this issue? I'd really like to tighten up the policy to minimise these occurances. If anybody would like to contact me, my tel number ia 01904 522735. Thanks
