2019-2020 Employee Handbook

Attendance and Punctuality

District Board of Trustees policy requires good attendance and punctuality on the part of employees. Unauthorized or excessive absences or tardiness will not be tolerated and may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination. Employees should notify their supervisor, as far in advance as possible, whenever they are unable to report for work or know they will be late. Such notification should include a reason for the absence or lateness and an indication of when the employee can be expected to return for work. If the supervisor is unavailable, employees should contact the Human Resources Office. Failure to notify the college of any absence or delay will normally result in loss of compensation during the absence or delay and may be grounds for disciplinary action. If it becomes necessary for an employee to remain away from work because of illness, accident, or any other reason, the supervisor must be notified promptly.
