Sample Employee Leave & Time-Off Policy

In the absence of a personal time-off policy, when has an employee called in sick enough times to justify dismissal? How many days off are appropriate when a family member is sick or dies? Do you have any choice about paying an employee who is on a jury or spending two weeks at reserve training? While it is possible to deal with each situation as it arises, a consistent and clearly communicated policy can make your life a lot easier. Employees will know what to expect and you won't be faced with making policy decisions each time a situation arises.

The tool you can download below provides an example of a leave and time off policy to help you manage your human resources. You may adapt it to match your business needs and your country's national regulations. It is recommended to ask for a lawyer/expert’s advice.
