3 Absenteeism excuses you can penalise employees for

Here's how to handle the cheap tricks your employees
use for a day off

The Stop Absenteeism Report

Dear Reader,

Excuse#1: “I went to the clinic, but they were too busy to give me a sick note. I wasn’t feeling well and I didn’t want to wait for nurse to write a note.”

Excuse#2: “I ran out of airtime and I couldn’t buy any because I didn’t have money, so I couldn't call you.”

Excuse#3: “I had to attend my aunt’s cousin’s daughter’s wedding ceremony in Rustenburg. I only found out about it at the last minute.”

You’ve most probably heard these excuses, and many more, one too many times and you’re so over it…

In most companies, absenteeism will cost you between 6-10% of payroll. This is mostly because employees feel they’re ‘entitled’ to use up all of their sick leave credits by having the odd ‘duvet day’.

Don’t accept excuses if your employee can’t give you supporting evidence to prove their absence from work.

If you read our latest report Stop Absenteeism you’d know that you don’t need to accept the above three excuses without proof.


But what about the sneaky employees who carefully calculate their sick leave cycle and ‘play by the rules’, even though there’s no legitimate reason for them to be absent.

How do you catch these employees out?
