HR Glossary / Attendance Policy

An attendance policy is a document explaining what is expected from employees on issues such as tardiness, no-shows, early outs, and no-call-no-shows.


How to Write an Attendance Policy?

An attendance policy prevents absenteeism in the workplace, sets standards for time management, and improves employee productivity.

An attendance policy should include:

  • Clear expectations about attendance: definition of tardiness, no-shows, sick days, etc.;
  • A reliable time tracking method;
  • Disciplinary procedures.

The attendance policy should be read and understood by every member of an organization.
