SFU is committed to fostering a culture of regular and consistent attendance at work and promoting health and wellness among our employees. The proper and timely management of absence from work will contribute to a healthier workplace; the effective management of sick leave costs; and ensuring that all employees are devoted to delivering better services. For this purpose we have developed the Attendance Management Guidelines (AMG) as part of your management toolbox to help employees reduce high absenteeism.

The objectives of the Attendance Management Guidelines are to provide management with the necessary tools to manage employees that may have unusually high levels of sick leave absences. Therefore the goals of these guidelines are to promote regular attendance at work, evaluate and understand absence problems and most importantly to manage non-culpable absenteeism consistently across the University.
