COVID-19 shook the world when it arrived, and it has taught us a lot, both personally and professionally. Many employers faced a significant challenge at the beginning of the pandemic, not being able to access essential employee data (for example, contact information). The shift to remote work occurred almost overnight. Those who were not prepared, quickly realized that they needed an HR Information System (HRIS) they could access virtually.
Unlimited sick leave policies are gaining popularity as a great addition to an organization's total rewards package. However, most employers tend to not implement the policies because of the risk factors. Yes, you might have that occasional employee who abuses the policy, but that can be managed. What I find most of my clients are worried about, is when an employee goes out on extended medical leave, causing them to become responsible for paying their full salary while they are out.
