HR Management Standards

Standard 6.2
Backup plans are documented to address any key employee leaves of absence.

Standard Details Implementation Considerations

Key positions are identified that require ‘backup’ to ensure continuation of service. Short term and long term plans are in place to address potential gaps in these key positions

Leaves of absence could be a result of many issues such as pregnancy, parental or adoption responsibilities, illness, bereavement, jury duty, voting. Ensuring critical positions have backup plans to have continued service is essential for the organization.

Refer to Standard 3.4

The annual review of performance management results could identify employees capable of assuming responsibilities of other positions.
