Does your business have a clear attendance policy? Have your employees all signed this agreement?

When an employee does not show up to work their scheduled shift, the situation is more serious than just a missed work shift. Some of the most common reasons for lawsuits under Wrongful Termination relate to employee attendance.

Precautions you can take:

1. Create and enforce a written and signed Employee Attendance & Punctuality Policy

2. Thoroughly document all communication with your employees and avoid verbal exchanges of important information with them

3. MOST IMPORTANTLY - Make sure you have an Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) policy in effect. 

*An EPLI policy is the only insurance that covers wrongful termination!

*REMEMBER* - Even if you do everything right - you can still get sued!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Never fire an employee who is out on Workers' Compensation!

Have a safe and wonderful week,
