Scene 8 (2m 40s)

[Audio] Time off and call-in policy. If you are coming down with a cold or feel that you will be unavailable to work due to other medical reasons (for example, taking care of a sick child) we ask that you provide us with 8 hours notice prior to the start time of your shift. Please contact your supervisor through the clean smarts app. When using the cleansmarts app to call in please provide the following information: your reason for being late or absent, state if the reason is due to a sickness or falls under FMLA or ADA exceptions and when you intend to return to work after an absence. We understand that life happens, and emergencies occur. In the instance that you are unable to give notice due an emergency please contact your supervisor as soon as possible to update them on your situation. You can forward all doctors notes and medical documentation to hr@augies.com to count as an excused absence. Failure to follow the call-in policy procedure makes one occurrence. One occurrence will result in a verbal warning, two occurrences will result in a written notice. If you are requesting time off for an upcoming vacation or event, we ask that you give us two weeks notice. If you have an upcoming doctor's appointment that will cause you to miss work, we ask for two weeks notice as all. However, the more notice the better. This ensures that our supervisors have adequate time in covering your shift. We appreciate your cooperation with these policies. During bad weather always assume your building is open. In the event of a severe weather situation please contact your supervisor regarding if you are expected to report to work or not..
