Guidance Notes for Employers on the UEFA Euro 2012 Football Championship

Guidance Notes for Employers: UEFA Euro 2012 Football Championship

The UEFA Euro 2012 football championship (Euro 2012) was hosted by Poland and Ukraine. It started on 8 June 2012 and finished on 1 July 2012.

Euro 2012 potentially caused difficulties for employers if, for instance, staff phoned in sick or simply did not turn up for work in order to watch matches. Employers also had to be aware of legal issues if they allowed Euro 2012 matches to be screened in the workplace. The Simply-docs Guidance Notes for Employers helped employers manage potential problems during this period.

The Guidance Notes cover such issues as:

• Advance Management of Absenteeism in order to help employers minimize unauthorised absences
• Effective handling of annual leave arrangements
• Showing key matches in the workplace
• Avoiding potential discrimination claims
