Please could somebody point me in the right direction.
I have a guy working for me full time for 1 year and 3 months. He has been off sick 28 days this year alone. He has taken his 15 days leave and 10 of the leave days had been in 2011. Off work 38 working days this year alone.
I have paid him fully and will for another month or so NOW.
The guy has cancer, I will try and help as far as I can BUT my contract at a large company is reliant on 4 people over three shifts, one per shift and one for Preventitive work and projects, I can see the place slowly going backwards and now I need to make a plan and get someone else in his place, what can I do to help this guy a little longer and get some work done at the same time.. Replace him with a temp. contracted person, in case he can come back, not sure if he will come back.? I need to think of the other 3 people and my contract.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
