Acas has published the third in its series of E-learning guides. The new guide, Managing Absence, follows on from their earlier E-learning guides on Information and Consulting, and Discipline and Grievance.
The guides are in a series of small 'units', such as 'What is absence and what is the cost?', 'How do you handle long-term absence' and 'How do you handle short-term absence'. Some of the units have a short quiz at the end.
These guides are a good first-reference point for employers, HR professionals and advisors, but are probably a little basic for specialist employment lawyers.
You need to register with the Acas website to access the guides. Registration is free.
