Who Is Governed by this Policy
Faculty and Staff
The University expects regular and timely attendance from all employees. Such attendance, in addition to being essential to the efficient operation of the department, is also used as a measure of an employee’s overall job performance. Regular attendance is essential if the University is to provide quality customer service and less stress and fatigue for all employees.
Whenever possible, at least one-half hour notice must be given to the Department if any employee is unable to report for work or is delayed. This reporting requirement may vary for union represented employees based on the applicable collective bargaining agreements.
The Department Head, or his/her designated representative, must approve any employee leaving work before his/her scheduled quitting time.
Employees who are frequently late reporting for work, or excessively absent from work and/or excessively absent on days before or after scheduled days off are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including, termination.
The Department Head should establish and communicate in writing the process employees should follow in order to report for work, call in sick, or if they will be late reporting to work.
This policy does not have definitions associated with it at this time. Upon periodic policy review this area will be evaluated to determine if additional information is needed to supplement the policy.
