Dear Chetan

Why is there a specific comment as :

How does female employee absconding be any different from male employee ?


To avoid such cases of absconding there is no foolproof solution, but a proactive approach and involvement with the employee through formal and informal channels shall be helpful to reduce such cases. To address this issue of absconding, your management has to have a review of entire organizational culture, supervisor-subordinate relationship, communication policy and office environment. Create / promote / encourage communication from employees to HR department.

Strategy wise, withhold incentive pay out to quarterly or half yearly basis, in order to retain employees to predictable period. Even after a good office environment, friendly work culture and promising opportunity. Those employees resort to restless job hopping or careless attitude towards work culture by absconding at fancy are good riddance to bad rubbish.

Dear Chetan

Mr. hussain is very much right in his approach..You should also check that employees should feel safe working environment.

Mentioning some points keep in mind for betterment.

*nobody shud feel job insecurity.

*nobody should be underpaid.specially do not offer less salary to people those who are in need of job at the point of hiring.

*people shud not suffer from politics

*These days generally girls are suffering with there bosses bad behavior it cud b any type of harassment like abusive language, mental toucher,useless work pressure(whether work is there or not or less work) etc. also see whether manager is feeling insure becoz of his/ her junior great performance.manager can also feel job insecurity and in this scenario manager will not let junior do ther work properly.this will effect employee mentally and they will leave the organisation without informing anybody.

*every quarterly pls distribute some forms in which employees can share their problem pertaining to job,manager salary issues etc etc.ask employees need not to sign the form and put in a box. pls keep box at a safe place where people can not see or may be in HR dept.

*you will get to know what exactly employees are suffering with.

Dear All,

This problem of absconding from work should be dealt at the time of joining of employee through communication. During the induction it should be made very clearly to the new joinee/joinees that if the employee does not report to job within a week and wihout a valid explanation to the immedidate Reporting Manager/HRD it will be assumed that he /she has left the job. Also actions which will taken against such employee should be made it clearly.

You can mention the same in the Appointment Letter so that it will be accepted and binding on the employee.

The above enables the employee know what action will be taken against him / her and since it will be accepted it can be used in the court of law if required.

Further, if the employee does not return within a week and without providing a proper explanation, you can send him a notice to provide an explanation . Further a Reminder Notice and then a Final Notice of Termination if required.

This is an area where we have to follow be strict in order to curb the issue and ensure that other employees dont follow it and also there should be stress on fact finding. In few cases , we can also go for Employee Counselling.
