VIII. 800 - Attendance and Punctuality

To maintain a safe and productive work environment, Drury expects staff members to be reliable and to be punctual in reporting for scheduled work. Absenteeism and tardiness place a burden on other staff members and on Drury. In the rare instances when a staff member cannot avoid being late to work or are unable to work as scheduled, he/she should notify his/her supervisor as soon as possible in advance of the anticipated tardiness or absence.

Poor attendance and excessive tardiness are disruptive. Either may lead to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.
