Topic Background:

If you ever had an employee who was a “leave abuser,” whether it is regular sick leave, vacation, military leave, FMLA, returns from unemployment compensation, or the like, you need to learn how to effectively use your policies, procedures, and the law to properly reign in and discipline these savvy missing-in-action employees.

Nearly every workplace is plagued with at least one employee who is incredibly talented at manipulating workplace leave, whether he or she is feigning illness, taking FMLA leave on Friday and Monday, or otherwise making sure that he or she only works when it suits him or her. Often, it seems impossible to catch these convincing and clever abusers in their lies and manipulations, and if you cannot catch them, how do you discipline them?
