Employee leave abuse and performance issues can be so frustrating for federal supervisors.
It’s essential for supervisors to understand the laws, regulations, policies and procedures associated with employee leave and attendance issues in the federal workplace. There are many leave categories, and different procedures and entitlements that come along with each. Supervisors also need to understand how to handle leave abuse and to use appropriate tools to correct employee behavior, while keeping in mind special cases involving reasonable accommodation, excessive absence and medical inability to perform.
Often, performance issues go right along with attendance issues: performance appraisals, end of cycle ratings on tough-to-track elements; discussing performance problems with employees; dealing with generic performance plans, and taking defensible performance-based actions.
FELTG’s own Barbara Haga will take the mystery out of how the leave and performance systems are supposed to work in the federal government in this brand-new two-day program. Ms Haga has over 30 years of experience working with HR on leave issues and performance appraisal systems, so you won’t want to miss the chance to attend this event.
