Sample Absence Policies: Ready to Customize to Create Your Own

Benefits: While any business operates best when all employees are present, employee absence and tardiness create more of a problem in some businesses than in others. With this in mind, we've designed two different sample absence policies, contained in the attached file. The first is very strict and is designed for businesses where both the presence and the promptness of employees are crucial, such as businesses with assembly-line production work.
