Tardies / Partial Unscheduled Absence Policy Term Definition

when employee(s) report to work after the scheduled starting time or leave the work area prior to the end of the scheduled shift without giving 16 hours notice. Each department determines the acceptable standard for tardies and partial unscheduled absences. Tardies and partial absences will be tracked.

Separately from unscheduled leave occurrences and an excessive number of tardies or partial absences may result in disciplinary action based on published departmental policy. It is up to department policy as to whether tardies or partial absences may be made up later in the work week.
