I work for a manufacturing company that like many others offer attendance allowance to employees who do not have any absences (other than booked holidays) within a month.

The problem is that the employees have found that having a day off sick and loosing the attendance allowance doesn’t stop them from working overtime and earning time and a half for overtime hours they work for the rest of the working week, ensuring that they earn more money than they would have done originally.

I wonder if anyone can advise of any way we can manage this so that we have a fair policy for all workers.

Does anyone have any wording we can use to stipulate that a 40 hour week must be worked before extra pay schemes kick in?
