There is no doubt that employee absences – short or long, sporadic or regular – pose unique challenges for management.

Please join presenters Alanna Twohey and Marie-Michèle Pellerin-Auprix of Bird Richard for an interactive discussion of the current case law on this topic, and what it means for you and your organization. The presentation will address some of the questions most commonly asked by employers about managing employee absences, including:

    • “I received a doctor’s note that simply says ‘absent from work’
      – do I have to accept it?”;
    • “An employee booked off sick right after we started managing her performance
      – how do I respond?”
    • “My employee’s paid sick time is running out and he wants to return to work
      – what should I do?”

Seminar to be held on May 17, 2016 at the Ambassador Hotel & Conference Centre, 1550 Princess Street, Kingston.
12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. – Presentation with Q&A to follow

Note: registration, networking and complimentary luncheon commence at 11:30 a.m.
