Tokmom--

Exactly--but it could get worse: You have to be at work at, say, 2:00 p.m. At 1:00, the school nurse calls, says your child has measles, and you are required to come pick up your child immediately. So now, in one hour, you are supposed to get your child from school, do a massive call-around to find a part time coworker who: can work for you, be there by 2:00, work the whole shift, and not be working overtime. If somehow you might be unable to fulfill all these requirements, YOU get charged with a no show-no call. Your replacement clocks out 5 minutes early? You're considered a no show-no call.

So my friend tells me.

We don't have any official policy on how often you can call in sick...however management does track those whose call ins are suspicious (e.g., weekly, certain days each month, etc.).

Also, if you call out for a weekend shift you must pick up a weekend shift the next weekend.

We run on a point system. We get 15 sick days per year, but after a certain number of points (it is prorated on how many hours you work) you get a written warning, at the next level you get a verbal and then you get a walk to HR after that. If you have a note from a doctor, it is put on file and when you take your walk to HR they look at the notes and deduct those points from your total, so you are most likely safe. But it does stop that frivoulous call ins.

We also have to make up weekend call ins, get no holiday pay if we call in the day before or after the day.

The points are on a rolling year, when the anniversary of those points come up, they drop off. But people still know how to come in under the radar and just kind of sit at the written warning area, when time comes off, they call in.

If you are a no show ( like you wrote your schedule down wrong and we can't get hold of you) then it is 4 points per hour until we hear from you. Had two people fired for that. If you are tardy, it is one point per hour. After 10 tardies, you get a warning, at 20 you get a walk to HR.
