Massive Increase in Unauthorised Absence Costs

Massive Increase in Unauthorised Absence Costs

Friday, 23 November, 2018 @ 15:05

The cost of unauthorised absence to UK business hit £18 billion last year and is predicted to hit £21 billion in 2020 (Centre of Economic and Business Research).

Absence Verification

Unfortunately, everyone gets sick! And many genuinely suffer from serious medical complaints. Nevertheless, fraudulent absence runs at a cost any times higher than the absent employee's wage.

Unauthorised absence can also:

  • Lower morale
  • Encourages a toxic culture
  • Decrease workforce effectiveness / productivity
  • Incur additional costs such as the hiring of temporary staff

Establishing an absence verification process not only weeds out dishonest claims, but also deters similar attempts in the future.
