It depends...

 

Usually the 'set period' would be 1 year, but employers can use a longer or shorter period if they wish.

I suggest that your girlfriend gets a copy of the Company's sickness absence/Bradford factor policy to see what period they are using.

If it states 1 year in the policy, the boss can't roll the points over to the following year.

Well, that's not very good is it?

If they don't have any kind of policy covering their use of the Bradford factor, how is the employer ever going to be able to say that an employee has reached a trigger point?

 

Whether or not weekends count would depend on whether weekends were normal working days under the contract.

After all you can't be absent on a day when you wouldn't be at work anyway because it's normally one of your days off.

Hello there.

 

I've started a new thread for you with the posts so far. Please continue to post on this one.

 

Fwiw, I agree with mariefab. How long is the boss planning to roll over the points for? If he did that, in time every employee would go over the limit.

 

My best, HB

Having worked with this system in a couple of companies it usually works on a rolling year. I.e. if you got points on the 19th Dec last year, they would have dropped off and no longer count for your total today. So your total as of today should reduce by the amount you got a year ago.

 

And the points that you (might have) got on March 13th this year stay with you in to next year. But drop off on their anniversary in turn.

 

Personally I think it is a very inhuman approach to a very human problem. And for companies to make it fair, everyone who exceeds the trigger levels has to have disciplinary procedures and that fills the time of managers and HR people up - when the majority neither deserve disciplinary procedures nor are "swinging the lead".
