Where I currently work we have a pretty strict attendance policy. I follow all the steps with verbal and written warnings, followed by a 3 day suspension and then ultimately termination. I document every discussiom with these employees as well. Yet it is so easy for these people to get unemployment! Just irks me to no end. I currently have an employee who told a staff nurse "I'm just waiting for my walking papers" and continues to have excessive call offs. I'd like to terminate her, but I truly know that's what she wants so she can go draw unemployment! Ugh, ok sorry for venting. Any suggestions or past experiences anyone would like to share?
