St. Joseph Hires Company to Track Absenteeism

July 6, 2011

Attendance Policy

The hospital has hired an outside company to handle and track absenteeism. Please be aware of the policy and keep track of your own call-offs. You can be terminated for chronic absenteeism. If you are absent due to a child or family member's illness, you may be eligible for Family Medical Leave or FMLA. This will give you 12 weeks of protected occurrences.

Also be aware that chronic tardiness may also lead to discipline up to and including termination.
