Availability for Work

Policy Statement

All of Duke's entities, schools, and departments should establish guidelines and procedures regarding attendance, tardiness, scheduled and unscheduled time off, and the requisite notification procedures for requesting these periods of leave. These procedures should be communicated and discussed regularly with all staff.

All supervisors are responsible for approving time off, and both supervisors and staff are expected to work together to schedule periods of leave from Duke. If a staff member is unable to report to work because of illness or other causes, he or she must notify their supervisor according to department notification procedures. Staff must inform their supervisor prior to an expected absence or tardiness.
