Are Bradford points a fair way of monitoring attendance and are they legal to use? As far as I was aware they were being phased out, colleagues are coming into work with flu and other contagious ailments cos they are worried about their points level.Last year we had a flu epedemic at work and the bosses were handing out tissues and lemsip rather than send ill people home.

Does anyone have any advice on this..another point no Trade unions are allowed in this workplace...pathetic!!:???::twisted:

I don't know what Bradford points are, sorry.

Is it where if you repeatedly don't show up, they send you to Bradford as a punishment?

BTW, a curry is an excellent remedy for colds and sniffles in my experience.

So, sorry can't help ya.

 

BUT!!

 

Trade Unions are not allowed!?!:mad:

 

Please tell me more about that......

Anyone who tries to introduce a union is suddenly disciplined then you never see them again...they go through all your records and calls when they find a fault then instant dismissal!! The old staff there from approx 6 yrs had to sign their contract to say they would not join. This does not happen now but it is not allowed and is frowned upon if mentioned.

This is an explanation of how Bradford Factor is calculated.

 

Bradford Factor

 

 

The Bradford Factor identifies persistent short-term absence for individuals, by measuring the number of spells of absence, and is therefore a useful measure of the disruption caused by this type of absence. It is calculated using the formula:

 

S x S x D S = number of spells of absence in 52 weeks taken by an individual

D = number of days of absence in 52 weeks taken by that individual

 

For example:

10 one-day absences: 10 x 10 x 10 = 1,000

1 ten-day absence: 1 x 1 x 10 = 10

 

5 two-day absences: 5 x 5 x 10 = 250

2 five-day absences: 2 x 2 x 10 = 40

 

The trigger points will differ between organisations. As for all unauthorised absence, the underlying causes will need to be identified.

 

 

 

Lots of companies use this method of monitoring absence. The theory is that employees who take lots of single days off sick (attracting a higher score) cause more disruption to the business than those who take longer "one off" periods of sickness.

 

A company don't have to recognise a union in the workplace, but they can't stop you being a member or having union representation at a disciplinary.

I'm a chef. I had to resign from my last job to some back to sunny West Yorks as both my elderly parents need looking after.

They're on the mend now, but there's not much about.

Ummm... i dont think health and safety will take kindly to them handing out medication, regardless of what medication it is, or infact forcing people to work who are clearly ill or at risk of spreading infectious viruses to other people.
