Company Policy Series – Attendance Policy Sample
The purpose of the Attendance Policy is to establish consistent absenteeism and tardiness guidelines that all employees are expected to adhere to. The Policy is designed to provide guidelines to follow for monitoring employee attendance and associated corrective action for deviation from Company attendance standards.
The following is what an Attendance Policy could look like:
“ABC Compnay expects all employees to conduct themselves in a professional manner during their employment. Regardless of the employee’s position with the Company, punctuality and regular attendance are essential for efficient operation of the business. Good attendance is a job-related standard of performance. Excessive and patterned absenteeism and tardiness have a direct adverse impact on an employee’s performance.”
In addition, some other guidelines in the Policy should include:
- Definitions for absence, late and/or tardy
- Employee and Supervisor Responsibilities
- Tracking Measures
Not all companies require the same polices and it is recommended that polices be tailored to a company’s specific needs. If you would like a complete version of this policy, please contact us.
