Lateness and Absence

All employees are expected to report to work regularly and on time. If you need to be late or absent for any reason, you are required to notify your supervisor per departmental procedures. Employees are expected to know and to follow all departmental procedures with respect to punctuality and attendance.

Failure to provide reasonable notice and/or satisfactory explanation of lateness or absence may result in a deduction from your pay for the time lost, as well as discipline. Repeated lateness and/or absences may also be cause for disciplinary action. An absence of three consecutive workdays without notice or satisfactory explanation may be treated as job abandonment, and in effect, a voluntary resignation. Therefore, it is very important that all absences be reported.
