The Fault Line

As a direct result of excessive absenteeism and tardiness, disciplinary action may be required. It will be based on frequency of occurrences in accordance with the following policy:

  • Absenteeism will be defined as being absent from work on any scheduled work day, even though the employee has reported said absence to his supervisor.

  • Each period of consecutive absence will be recorded as “one occurrence” regardless of the number of days missed.

  • Tardiness will be defined as reporting to work within 10 minutes of the scheduled starting time. One occasion of tardiness will be charged as one-quarter of an absence occurrence.

  • Employees who report to work late, as provided for in the reporting regulations, or who leave before the end of the shift (with management’s permission) will be charged with one-half of an absence occurrence for either of these occurrences.

  • Employees who are absent without calling in will be charged with two occurrences of absence for that occasion.

  • Absence due to funeral leave, military obligation, jury duty or union business (all as defined in the labor contract) and further, including hospital confinement and work-incurred injury, will not be recorded as an occurrence of absence for purposes of disciplinary action.

  • For each calendar month of perfect attendance, an employee with an absentee record will have one occurrence deducted from the absentee record.

  • Absence records will be maintained for a consecutive 12-month period, starting with the employee’s first occurrence of absence. All absence records and warning slips that are one year old or older shall not be considered for purposes of disciplinary action under this policy.

  • Corrective discipline will be administered according to the following:

    - Three occurrences, or points, within a 12-month period: Verbal warning

    - Five occurrences, or points, within a 12-month period: Written warning

    - Seven occurrences, or points, within a 12-month period: Second written warning

    - Twelve occurrences, or points, within a 12-month period: Discharge.
