Abstract

Absences planned in advance do not necessarily cause the employer undue problems with regard to organization of work. Perhaps work sharing can be instituted or if the period of absence is comparatively short, for example a holiday, perhaps the less urgent work can be permitted to accumulate and be tackled as and when there are spare resources elsewhere.
