DATE: Today’s Date
TO: Name, Office Assistant II
FROM: Name, Supervisor
EMPLOYEE NAME, on (dates) you were tardy in your arrival to work. On those dates, I counseled you regarding the need to be at your desk ready to begin work at 8:00. Since then, you have been tardy on DATE and on DATE. Your late arrival adversely impacts our ability to serve our clients and can no longer be tolerated. It is your responsibility to arrive to work on time.
My expectation is that you have no tardies in excess of 15 minutes, and no more than two tardies of 15 minutes or less, per month, on an ongoing basis.
You may no longer make up the time, nor may you use accrued vacation, holiday or compensatory time to cover any instances of tardiness. Rather, this time will be charged to Leave without Pay (LWOP) or Absence without Leave (AWOL), as circumstances warrant. Should you consistently meet these expectations for a six-month period, I will consider lifting the LWOP requirement.
To assist you in improving your attendance, I am making a job performance referral for you to the County’s Employee Assistance Program. The services provided by the Employee Assistance Program may assist you in resolving any personal difficulties that may be contributing to your absenteeism, and you may take advantage of this referral by calling 1-800-834-3773.
Please be aware that tardiness and AWOL are violations of Civil Service Rule XIII and are cause for disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal from County service.
