#79 Pattern of Excessive, Unscheduled Absence9

Employee “patterns” his time off in that he takes additional unscheduled time off once former incidents have fallen off the rolling calendar year.10 In this case, the company has a policy that states that five incidents of unscheduled and unauthorized absence in the rolling calendar year equals a verbal warning, seven incidents equals a written warning, and nine incidents equal a final written warning. It is therefore possible for employees to incur multiple verbal warnings without progressing to the written warning level, since old incidents of unscheduled and unauthorized absence fall off the rolling calendar as new incidents occur.
