Absence explained

Absence can come in many forms, some unavoidable (emergencies), some vital (family, holidays - for wellbeing), some manageable (education, long term absences), and some unwanted (such as absenteeism - short term sickness). It refers to any time taken off work by an employee and is usually categorised into authorised and unauthorised absence.

Authorised absence refers to absence approved by someone with permission to do so, and includes annual leave, time off in lieu (TOIL), reasonable sick leave, and parental leave.

Unauthorised absence occurs when the employee is not given permission for absence, or is not given permission after it has occurred, and can include long-term sick leave without reasonable supporting evidence, persistent lateness, or holiday not being agreed in line with the Company's policies.
