In our labor law there is a list of grounds for termination of an employee. It is surprising that absenteeism is there. But I now understand that a worker who is always absent is affecting the flow of work much more if he works in a factory and being in the production line. To be absent once a week and every week will harm the productivity of the company so he can be terminated for that cause. Maybe employees should understand that they are hired because there is work to do. If they will not be there then he might as well look for another job.
