Call-Off-Sick Policy

Consider how and when employees who are too sick to work are to report that they will be absent. If the company opens at 8:00 A.M. and an employee is scheduled to report to work at that time, is it okay to call off sick then or should she call her supervisor at home an hour or two before? If the employee works a service-type job where her absence will affect business (she is one of two food servers scheduled to work the breakfast shift), the sooner the manager knows the better. Make it clear to employees if they are to contact their supervisor before the start of their shift if they are ill.
