With the World Cup upon us, there is an increased risk of employers having to deal with problems
relating to absence. There may be conflicting holiday requests, unauthorised absence or employees
going sick to watch a match. Social media can be a great tool to find out exactly what employees
have been up to, and catch them out going sick the day after a match. With the Olympics round the
corner too, now is a great time to review your policies and make sure your business is adequately
protected. Sending out a Sporting Events Policy can be really helpful to let employees know what is
and is not permitted.
