Workplace absence reason codes include clocking out for smoking breaks


A strike involving border control workers planned for the eve of the Olympics – which officially begin tomorrow (Friday) – has been called off. The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union confirmed the strikes and work-to-rule action by immigration and passport staff have been called off. After some compromises PCS general secretary, Mark Serwotka, said: “The key areas like borders will see a significant increase of staff. We are proud of our workers who keep our borders secure. These are professional, hard-working staff.”

Working rules are comfortably dealt with a Tensor clocking and time and attendance system. Absence management is one of its features. Using the time and attendance software you can choose to view all types of absences, a single absence type or all types with a common category. Absence categories and types are fully user-definable. Up to nine reason codes can also be stored in the clocking station. These allow clocking out for configurable reasons such as Dentist, Business or Smoking Break.
