ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of having an absence management policy to employers for preventing absenteeism during sporting events. Employers need to remind employees that requests for holidays will be dealt with in accordance with the usual procedure. They should also publicize their alcohol policy in case employees decide to watch a game and have a drink at a local pub before returning to work. Similarly, any employee downloading a live stream of a sporting event using one of the employer's computers may have breached an IT security policy.
