I am wondering what others suggest we do in cases where staff members might be sick at least once every two weeks, sometimes more. I’m not referring to staff members who are in any way pretending, they are genuinely sick.
Do any of you have suggestions or a policy that guides how you may have addressed a similar situation? I witnessed something similar previously and other staff members began to resent always having to sub for her. I’m also wondering if others have policies where you might move someone to a shorter shift -- that makes it easier to have substitute help and keep good employees.
I appreciate any suggestions you have.
