First of all you must need to figure out 2 such employees who are doing this frequently. And its sure that those 2 are taking the leadership and guiding others. You need to give them ultimatum infront of every other employees. I am sure that they will get violent after it and they will continue the same and this time even more then before. At this moment choose one and directly terminate him/her. But remember to terminate one not both. Soon you can see the results will be in your favor. I hope it will work. But before applying this trick you must try to have a conversation or meeting with all of them and try to figure out if any genuine reason is there. Because if all employees are doing this means there must be some thing that is lacking from your end. So simply blaming employees is not right.

Hi The issues that you have mentioned are pretty general and therefore, would be tough for me to provide you any specific solutions

I understand that you would have a Union Recognised or not. The best is to work with the union- try to have a productivity linked compensation agreement .

As for the leaves, you can cajole and push; however, if you have decided that you need to take a tough stand (only take it forward there can be no going back and therefore, please take management into confidence)- reject the leaves, if they have not been approved at least 7 days / 3 days in advance as per the policy. Though they can take sick leaves. For sick leave for 2/3 day or more (as per the policy), they need to submit doctors certificate. Incase, you believe a particular individual has got a fake one, you can write to the doctor to put pressure on him.

A downside is that they can gang up and take enmass sick leave. If that happens then you need an expert to guide you out of such incidents.

Incase, you have any specific issues, let me know.
