Recording Absence

Managers are responsible for ensuring that all sickness absence is accurately recorded in a timely manner by inputting the sickness absence information on My View.

When the absence is recorded electronically an automated email confirming the details of the sick leave will be sent to the employee.

Accurate recording and monitoring will help to identify any patterns of absence that may be of concern, for example Mondays/Fridays or days off following leave/Bank Holiday. If a pattern of absence occurs the Line Manager will be required to meet with the employee to explain or comment on the pattern.

Follow the recording absence process

Reporting absence

If you are ill and unfit for work, you will need to call your line manager and inform them of your reason for absence and how long you expect to be absent for.

You should get in touch over the phone, and not via text message.

Your line manager will then record your absence on ResourceLink. 

The next steps of the process depends on the length of your absence.
