In my opinion, if the medical certificates are valid ones, you may have to pay for the number of days he is entitled to.

I am the HR Manager of the company. The department head came up to me and complaint that his staffs has been taking a lot of MCs, late for work and missing in action. We have given him 1st warning letter on July1st, yet still the same behavior occures. What should I do on my part,

1) To issue him a 2nd warning letter?
2) To speak personally to him and give him a verbal warning?

Appreciate the advise.

Thank you.,

If you have your own company panel doctors, tell them not to be too liberal in granting MCs. You may consider giving good attendance incentive to the production workers. Medical leave/absenteeism can be even more costly in terms of loss of production, medical bills than incentive. Giving warnings for taking MCs may not be advisable and you know it is not too effective.
