Attendance and Punctuality
You are expected to report for work on time, on a regular basis. Unnecessary
absenteeism and tardiness are expensive, disruptive, and place an unfair burden on other employees and the supervisor. Continued unsatisfactory attendance could result in disciplinary action including, but is not limited to, suspension or termination. It may also have an adverse effect on any promotional consideration.
If you are going to be late or absent for any reason, telephone your supervisor or the BRINM administrative office (505) 260-1033 as far in advance as possible but within two (2) hours of the start of your workday. Explain the reason for the absence and expected time of return to work.
NOTE: It is your responsibility to ensure that proper notification is given. Asking another employee, friend or relative to give this notification is not considered proper, except under emergency conditions.
Any employee who fails to give such notification will be charged with an unexcused absence. If notice is given and your supervisor or BRINM does not think the absence is justified, it will be considered unexcused. The discipline that will be administered for unexcused absences includes, but is not limited to, suspension or termination.
