What recourse do we have if employee repeatedly misses work on Mondays?

Q. How can we handle an employee who routinely uses vacation and sick time on Mondays?

A. It depends in part on your attendance policy. For example, does it require that sick time be used for occasions when the employee is genuinely sick?

If you believe that the employee is using sick time when he is not really ill, you can ask him to bring in a doctor’s note (as long as that complies with your policy and you apply that policy consistently).

If your policy allows employees to use vacation time when they wish to, subject to a supervisor’s approval, it may be difficult to prohibit the employee from using vacation time on Mondays.

If you worry that your employee is abusing paid time off, or if the pattern of absences is creating a hardship, you can counsel or warn the employee.
