Attendance (Tardiness and Absence)

Attendance and punctuality are important to the university. Every employee is expected to work when scheduled and to arrive on time. The effectiveness of every work group depends on people working together and coordinating their efforts.

Tardiness. You should always notify your supervisor if you anticipate being late to work or absent. However, there are times when unforeseen circumstances occur. If you expect to be late, you are required to call your supervisor. Be sure to contact your supervisor when you arrive at work.

Absence. As soon as you know you must be absent from work, you must notify your supervisor. Employees absent without previous permission or without notifying their supervisors are subject to disciplinary action, including termination. (HR 107)
