Effective Date: 06/01/95


To establish standards and to encourage all employees to meet their work schedule.


All employees are expected to be at work on time for their scheduled work period. The employee's supervisor must be informed prior to the beginning of the work period of any absence or variance from the established work schedule expect in unusual circumstances.

Consecutive absences of three (3) work days may be considered voluntary termination, unless prior to the beginning of the fourth day the employee has notified his/her supervisor of the reason for the absence, and if required, has obtained the supervisor's approval of such absence.

Supervisors may require the presentation of a physician's return to work statement and/or doctor's excuse when absenteeism is excessive or when the employee has been absent because of a serious illness or injury.

Unexcused absences or repeated tardiness or failure to report absences may subject the employee to disciplinary action.
