UPDATED: Attendance policy:
Frequently Asked Questions:
When does the new policy start?
The new policy is effective September 24, 2018.
What are the major changes?
The new attendance policy combines the benefits of an occurrence based system with the simplicity of a points based system. The new point based system allows up to 80 points every 6 months. Various forms of adherence will result in different point allotments. The largest point allotments are 20 points for a "peak call out" (calling out on Monday, Saturday or Sunday) and 40 points for "No Call No Shows".
Is there still a 10 minute grace period?
Yes, DGA will retain it's current grace period to allow for occasional tardiness. However, any consistent utilization will be considered a pattern of behavior and thus will result in disciplinary action including a written warning and even possible termination of employment.
Are there any other additional changes?
No, the rest of the policy and procedures remains the same. As always you are strongly encouraged to re-read the policy in it's entirety.
