That is what I was just told. We are retail I am here for 15 hours today.
I scheduled half my staff for 4 hour shifts so that no one has to work long on the holidays.
I just got a call out she's "sick" although she was fine yesterday.
This is her third "sick" for the month of May. I told her I am going to need a doctors note, as per our employee manual informed her when she was hired her. As per the reminder policies hung in the break room.
She said no doctors are open today, so she would have to take a day tomorrow and miss work again.
I said , thanks for letting me know I'll find your coverage for tomorrow too, but she would get a written warning for the 4th missed day in a single month.
She screamed and cried that it wasn't fair that I was making her miss a day tomorrow to get a stupid doctors note, and I am going to write her up for it.
I reminded her of the company policy, I reminded her I did not call her out the previous two days this month, nor am I forcing her to call out today.
Pretty sure she's not going to make it long here.
More than two days in a single 30 month span ( consecutive or not) require a doctors note, and you will not be permitted to work until you present a doctors note.
I think someone should have planned her call outs a bit better if she didn't want to work memorial day for 4 hours. My heart is really bleeding for her - NOT.
